Printer Issues Mac OS 10.5.7 – lpadmin Error

After updating to Mac OS X v10.5.7, you may be prompted to enter the name and password of a user in the lpadmin group when changing a printer setting or printer control.

This affects Mac OS X 10.5.7 and Mac OS Printing/Fax.

To fix this here are the instructions:

  • Log in as an administrator account.
  • Open Terminal, which is found in the Utilities folder, in the Applications folder.
  • Type this command in Terminal on a single line:

dseditgroup -o edit -p -a admin -t group _lpadmin

  • Press Return.
