Yet when I try to set up my printer in EOS I need to go to the web interface, the system-config-printer app never is able to install the printer in a working state (but can be used to administer the printer after it’s installed).
On Arch? Just click-and-go. I have no idea why. I have exactly the same printer packages installed and I can’t find any other packages that should have anything to do with this missing in the EOS default install…
I use an HP Deskjet 2722 using the official HP drivers.
Administration group, commonly used to give privileges to perform administrative actions. It has full read access to journal files and the right to administer printers in CUPS. Can also be used to give access to the sudo and su utilities (neither uses it by default).
Administration group, commonly used to give read access to protected logs. It has full read access to journal files.
do you think so? as we do install only one user (not possible to install more with our calamares setup) it is nice that this user can read all the logs or not? it is read access only.
If you will go to create a second user with tools from DE or command you can decide to not put them into that group. plus I do think that if you use sudo and the weel group it will not make more risk then that, but may is also not needed as wheel group will bring that rights in already…
wheel: " It has full read access to journal"
so yea what for to add this then
I’m well aware I’ve had different experiences for ease of setup with printing in the past depending on the DE, which was why I asked. I think the printer setup on Plasma was glitchy for some people for a while, If I remember correctly.
Plasma (KDE5) was glitchy in many ways a few years back but nowadays most things seem pretty stable. Things eventually get ironed out usually. I try not to use a printer much though. Paper-free seems best, but yeah, sometimes you have to.
