Hello, I am looking for information on setting a personal (i.e. not system-wide) default printer in GNOME. This is for a corporate environment with many printers and users which usually do not have administrative privileges.
On the command line, it is possible to set a default printer on a per-user basis using 'lpoptions -d <Queue_Name>'. This will save the default printer queue name to a file ~/.cups/lpoptions. I cannot find a way to set this using a GUI in GNOME. It used to be possible with system-config-printer, where you could choose to set a default printer only for you or system-wide, and only the latter required admin privileges. In GNOME, it seems that admin privileges are always required, as it is not possible to select "Set as default" without unlocking the printers panel. The GNOME user guide also mentions that "You need administrative privileges on the system to set the default printer." (https://help.gnome.org/users/gnome-help/stable/printing-setup-default-printer.html.en). If that is really the case, how is one supposed to choose a default printer in a corporate network using GNOME?
