Re #1018, you can kind of do this with sudo lpr -Usomeone -Pajax. You need to do this as root because LPR dates from the days when every machine on the network was trusted and we all ran NFS. In our environment we no longer trust that.

LPRng has an allow_user_setting variable, but it seems like there's no way to set this to "everyone". We should see if there is or send them a patch.

Of course, this is all using LPR directly to the Pharos server, and not via CUPS, so it probably won't work anyway.

rlpr has no problem doing this without SUID root.

rlpr -Ugeofft -Pbw@mitprint.mit.edu black_square.pdf works just fine

debathena-pharos-support is also a thing and is documented.
