I want to use sudo in a cups backend. As cups runs as user lp, I need
the following for the user:
lp ALL=(johannes) NOPASSWD: thecommand
and I use the following command in the cups backend: sudo -u johannes
The problem is, that sudo asks for a password although I thought that I
have enabled passwordless execution for the command.
So what else do I have to do for user lp?
Thank you very much for your help.
My system is Debian Lenny.
