    Anyone know a work around for this? In Tiger you could. In Leopard only admins can add printers. This makes no sense and is something that could cause major problems in a large company!

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!

    Go to http://localhost:631/admin, click on "Edit Configuration File". Under the "Show Shared printers on the local network" section, add these lines:

    <Limit CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer CUPS-Set-Default CUPS-Delete-Printer>
    Order allow,deny
    Allow all

    You'll want to restart your computer after this. This should allow non-admin users to add printers via the Add Printer dialog.
