Sub_title: Wants password.

Using Puppy 3.01 and the CUPS 1.2.11 that is in it, it will ask for a password to do almost anything.

Do we have a default 'password'? Never had to do this in 3.00 or before.

I am using puppy 3.00 and it wants a password from me before using cups as well. Since no password is available to my knowledge, just do what I did with my lexmark, use the the PDQ printer configuration. I don't know why, but it helped to name my printer "Clyde". I wish I could offer better advice or a password, but I don't have either.

set the root password yourself using the console
passwd root
then <enter>.
You will be asked for a new password - note the password you enter doesn't echo and when you press <enter> you are asked to enter it a second time.

This root user and password is what the CUPS system is asking for.
