Did you per chance enable the ThinLinc Printer Access Control system? 
Check for a script or a link to a script called tl-limit-printers in 
your /opt/thinlinc/etc/sessionstartup.d and 
/opt/thinlinc/etc/sessionreconnect.d directories and remove them if you 
do not want to use the printer access control.
