> The root only CUPS administration issue is partly by security design and partly default configuration. The default security is root only, loopback web access. The default configuration is blank or rather, no printers installed.

If you run firefox (or other browser) with gksudo, can you currently
access the printer config page?  If so, how bad of a solution would it
be to include a script labeled "Printer Config" which opens a browser
to the config page with gksudo?

The CUPS admin page is pretty good for installing printers and it's
already installed. If the security issues could be addressed, I'd
rather use that than install more software.
