cups-pk-helper is a PolicyKit helper to configure cups with fine-grained privileges.

For example, it's possible to let users enable/disable printers without requiring a password, while still requiring a password for editing printer settings.

To make it easy to integrate cups-pk-helper in system-config-printer, the D-Bus API is based to a large extent on the pycups one.


The development occurs in git, in the cups-pk-helper repository. Bugs should be reported in Bugzilla.

Translations should be uploaded to Transifex.
