Thread: Install new network printer

  1. #1

    Cool Install new network printer

    Hi,

    Using Kate and the wizard I could search for the network printers and they were all found. After a few step I end up with screen showing a test button, press it and a window comes up asking for user and password. I have tested all types and combinations I know of but nothing is accepted. What user and password is requested here ?

    You first have to configure printing in Yast - Hardware - Printer. Once in there you select Print via Network, Accept printerinfo from following servers: Accept from everywhere, OK.
    OK

    Now the networkprinters should be available, as long as they are not one way or another set up not to do so.

    I can ad that I can use Konqueror or Firefox , adressing the printer with it's TCP/IP adress, find it and receive and read all printer data I can also enter with a password the network data on the printer. The password I also tried with kate but no success.

    I find Cups the best (and less problematic) way to setup printers.

    Cups asks for root's password for managing printers...

    I agree with Camalen. If you have a samba printer you could read this tutorial for openSUSE: Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]
    or if it's an IPP link try this: Linux Printer Sharing: Suse/openSUSE 10.x 11.x IPP Print Server for Linux & Windows Clients

    Yast - Hardware - Printer worked out lovely.
    I used connection wizard.
    There is a locate button where you fill in the IP address it didn't find anything though. However typing in the IP address manually work just fine. Thanks for the inputs.
