#3 closed defect (invalid)

CUPS daemon permissions shouldn't be set system wide

Reported by: jhamrick Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: server
Keywords: Cc:


The CUPS daemon processes need to run under group 'audio' so that they can use the audio facilities of the system, but the CUPS daemon processes do not inherit groups from the lp user (so, for example, even if we add 'lp' to 'audio', the process will not be running in group 'audio'). For the time being, I've set the CUPS daemon to always run under group 'audio', but there should really be a better solution.

With the advent of the new IPP server, we won't need to worry about CUPS!
