I'll speak from memory here.

I believe in /etc/security/console.apps  or somewhere in /etc/pam.d
there should be a system-config-printers pam config file. There should
be lines in there that enforce su/sudo for applications that have a
pam config file in one of the aforementioned directories.
If you don't have the file, then just copy one other and name it
system-config-printers; the file name is important, for it has to
match the name of the system-config-* executable.
