Odi's astoundingly incomplete notes

preventing CUPS password prompt

Add Unix groups to CUPS:
SystemGroup lpadmin root
Set permissions to access the local secret:
chgrp -R lpadmin /run/cups/certs
This directory contains a secret that is read by CUPS utilities like cupsenable. They pass that secret in HTTP Authorization headers to the local HTTP socket when sending command.

Add your user to that group:
usermod -a -G lpadmin myuser
