CUPS won't start on fat client

I can't get CUPS to start on a fat client. This is more complicated,
because I can't sudo to check anything, because once the user logs in
on the fat client, it doesn't use the server's user database anymore.

So, two questions:

1. Does anyone know if CUPS not starting on an AMD64 LTSP fat client
running 10.04 is a known problem with a known solution. (This is
regular Ubuntu LTSP, not Edubuntu, but the LTSP part makes this list a
lot more useful, I think.)

2. How do I get sudo access on the client?

Thanks muchly,
