Could every one please ignore this post?  I already got a reply in the 
thread "Printing from apps as a regular user..." (which of course, is 
the same question as the post above).  I just thought that more info was 
need for an answer, so I re-sent it with as much info as I thought could 
help, but my original post received a clear answer.  Thanks.
