We have users that travel frequently to random destinations, and while there they need to be able to install print drivers for whatever brand/model of printer they happen to have at the location they will be working from.
The users do not have admin rights so I am looking for a way to use Application Manager 8.9 to allow these users to install driver software for locally connected USB printers.
I was hoping there was a way to create a list of trusted manufacturers from signed driver install files but either this is not possible or I am doing something wrong.
Within a Rule, under User Privileges -> Components (location might be different for AM 8.9, I don't have a console at hand) it is possible to add permissions for various components, including Printers. I would try this first. This should work for adding and removing drivers for printers that are installed using standard methods. Sometimes a printer manufacture will wrap their printer drivers in a bespoke installer. This method of install may not be support as standard APIs are not called that we can intercept. However they may have a basic driver installation binary as well.
