[Bug 827331] XFCE desktop ask for root password to cancel user print jobs.

--- Comment #7 from Carlos Robinson <carlos.e.r@xxxxxxxxxxxx> 2013-06-30

Clarification: I'm not using any KDE thing.

I can Cancel as user jobs I have initiated with the same user, using the cups
web interface, or via "lprm JOBNUM" as user. However, XFCE asks for ROOT's
password to do the same (presumably using Gnome print dialog). I don't know if
once or twice, once is bad enough.

Ie, the desktop is not honouring cups settings. Even if the design decision is
not to honour them, root password is excessive.
