The only hint I found was "Hmm... if everything is grayed out, then
you are not logged in as a user with enough privileges".

No, I have not setup print admin in smb.conf as it is ok for me to do
server side configuration as root. And that works. If I log in as
root, I am able to change and store the default settings.
But if I log in as a user other than root I can't even change the
default document settings. Everything is gray and inactive, even if
the user is in the local admin group.
