Restricted SAM (set up through "sam -r") would probably be the way to go.

Also, if you have sudo installed,, you can create the user for only this purpose.

Re: user for Printer management

hi Pete,

i have tried the "sam -r", it works for me.

by the way, may i know are there any way to further limit the user, ie, when the user login, SAM will auto start? when the user exit SAM, the user will be log off the system?

thx so much.

I suppose you could change the user's shell to /usr/sbin/sam. But this may not have the right DISPLAY variable set?

If so, you could replace the user's shell by a wrapper that does that then invokes SAM.

Re: user for Printer management

thx All,

also is "sam -r" can restrict printer access? ie. user can only view some printers but not all.

thx again.
