Hi

Friend has a Acer Aspire 1 netbook using Linpus Linux Lite v1.0.3.E. she asked me to set up a new Epson wireless printer for her.

I got so far using the CUPS web interface, but at the end it asked me for a user name and password. The owner of the netbook has no idea of any user accounts and doesn't know the root one either. The netbook doesn't ask for a password on booting up.

Can anyone advise how I can find a user/password that will work?

Thanks

when i added a printer to my xandros machine, i typed sudo passwd into the terminal and then entered the password i wanted to use. there wasn't any superuser account on there previously, though. i'm a novice with linux, so i don't know if this will help, but maybe...?
