openSUSE: Password Not Excepted In hp-toolbox When Changing Printer Settings

Applies To
HPLIP Version: 
Linux OS Distribution(s): 

I'm trying to change the printer settings in the toolbox and I'm getting prompted for a password in the terminal window and my password isn't working


You will need to add your user to the "LP" user group. To do this in SUSE:

Run YaST
Goto Security and Users
Edit your user
Click 'details'
Click LP
Finally click 'accept'.

Note: You may need to logout and back in for the changes to take effect.

Note: If you continue to experience problems you may need to add the following groups to your user account; lp, sys, and/or root.
