How to get a printer connected to linux
 

January 18, 2015

 
   

These are general instructions on how to connect a windows shared printer to a linux machine.

These instructions worked with fedora 19, XFCE.

 

       in firewallD (firewall-config) turn on:   

              mdns
              ipp
              ipp-client
              samba-client

 

         yum install system-config-printer

                   ... or ...

       http://localhost:631     ... the CUPS printer manager

The "Device URI" needs to be set correctly. For example, it might be labeled: smb//machine_name/HPLaserJet... The correct labeling can be found on the WinXP machine at:

       start >> settings >> printers >> right-click on printer >>
       properties >> parts >>
      correct name is listed in the "port" column
