I have some HP inkjets. Sometimes they'll run low on ink, and cups will

How can I avoid the need for root access? Is there a "printer enable
thyself" option?

I am not sure about system-config-printers, but for the CUPS web
interface, you can set up other user name/group/password
combinations that have administrator access. You can also limit the
type of access specific groups have.

Take a look at the /etc/cups/cups.conf file. You may also want to
read the cups.conf man page...
