I have an iMac with OS X 10.3.7 and an HP OfficeJet G55.
Whenever I do a fast user switch between accounts on the iMac I lose the ability to print. I looked all over the web, but can't find any reference to this problem on either Apple's or HP's web site. Does anyone know how to fix this???

when you set up the printer, did you make it the default for all accounts? try opening printer setup utility in another account and see if it shows up. if so, you may have to reset it up for each account.

Unfortunately that didn't seem to work. I only have the 1 printer, so it was already the default for both accounts. (I went ahead and clicked "Make default" for it anyway just to be sure.) But when I re-tested it afterwards it came back with:
Opening Printer Connection Failed: Unable to open the printer connection. Please check your printer connections and check for printer errors.
(with the choices) Delete job, stop all jobs, stop job
any other ideas greatly appreciated!!! (This problem is so inconvenient!)
