[Solved] CUPS lpd settings

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

[Solved] CUPS lpd settings

Post#1 by gmoore » 21 Oct 2014, 18:59

I need to set the ldp setting as a specific user. lpd://<user>@<printer>/<queue> When I try this with the wizard I get file://dev/null for my printer connection setting in CUPS.
If I set the printer up with ldp://<printer>/<queue> the jobs make it to the print server but the Kiosk guest user is not authorized to print and that would be a concern to just let any account named guest print.
Is there a way to change the ldp settings? I don't know how to find/change the printers.conf.

Porteus Kiosk 3.1.1

Works beautifully. Thanks a ton.
In the Kiosk Wizard it is now possible to set an lpd string as ldp://<user>@<printer>/<queue> as of version 3.1.2

Tested with:
Porteus Kiosk version 3.1.2
Pharos print server
HP Laserjet 4250
