Hope you can answer this question for me. Would like to give printer admin access to some users and was following the instructions in the CUPS 'hidden-settings' document. However, I cannot execute the command "/sbin/e-smith/signal-event cups-reconfigure". I get the error: "Can't open directory /etc/e-smith/events/cups-reconfigure".

I have the e-smith cups installed as follows:

rpm -qa | grep cups

Here is the output of ls -l /etc/e-smith/events/actions/*cups*
-r-xr-xr--    1 root     root         1682 Oct 14  2003 /etc/e-smith/events/actions/cups-conf
-r-xr-xr--    1 root     root         1724 May  5  2003 /etc/e-smith/events/actions/cups-conf-startup
-r-xr-xr--    1 root     root         1430 May  4  2003 /etc/e-smith/events/actions/cups-reload
-r-xr-xr--    1 root     root         1431 Jun 26  2003 /etc/e-smith/events/actions/cups-restart
-r-xr-xr--    1 root     root          171 Jun 15  2003 /etc/e-smith/events/actions/cups-symlink-ppds
-r-xr-xr--    1 root     root          275 May  4  2003 /etc/e-smith/events/actions/cups-touch-syncref

Any ideas?, Thanks for your help

The instructions in the howto you refer to assume that you have e-smith-cups 0.0.9 installed. The SystemGroup database property was introduced in 0.0.8 and the cups-reconfigure event in 0.0.9. I should update the howto to reflect that.
