Sounds like you need to set permissions to allow other users access.
If you could fill out your system specs and tell us what make and model the printer is we could be a little more detailed with some help.

In think I figured it out.
For the 'other' user, the recently installed printer was not set as default.
I changed it to the default printer, and she's working now.

Glad to hear you got working, thanks for posting back your solution too.
