The problem would  be that  you did not give the access to those users who
wants to print
in KDE you invoke system settings/printer manager and there  you add the

Choose the printer in question and click properties tab and on there would
be box like , general, interface etc, scroll down to the bottom most there
you will find users, once you choose those box you will see change on
properties box

Click change and choose allowed users  and add that user in question.

This may resolve this issue
