Karmic, Cups and the root password

Just a short note.

I've been having problems with creating a new printer profile using cups.
Cups kept prompting for the root password but wouldn't accept it.

Turns out you need to be able to login as root directly.
This is done by executing: sudo passwd root
in a terminal. Afterwards, cups performed as intended, go figure!
