    I keep getting a message on my wife profile on my iMac
    "printtool is trying to modify the printer settings. Type the name and password of a user in the "print administrators" group to allow this"
    under that message is asls for the username and password so I enter my (admin) username and password and it goes away.......untill next time she logs into her profile and it appears again.
    I can't find anything to do with 'printed" or print administrators to make this go away.
    any suggestions?

    I get the same message. I also have an HP Printer that the scanning software does not work (it claims permission problems often but not always)
