13.3.2. Starting Printer Setup

Printer setup process varies depending on the printer queue type.
If you are setting up a local printer connected with USB, the printer is discovered and added automatically. You will be prompted to confirm the packages to be installed and provide an administrator or the root user password. Local printers connected with other port types and network printers need to be set up manually.
Follow this procedure to start a manual printer setup:
  1. Start the Printers configuration tool (refer to Section 13.3.1, “Starting the Printers Configuration Tool”).
  2. Select Unlock to enable changes to be made. In the Authentication Required box, type an administrator or the root user password and confirm.
  3. Select the plus sign to open the Add a New Printer dialog. Select the printer from the list or enter its address below.
