Configure a printer on Linux

All printers are visible on the workstations of the laboratory.
On the laptops you have to configure the printers manually, here is the procedure.

To configure a printer, you must already know its name, it is typically indicated by a label stuck on the printer. In the example below we will take the printer 'lpcopieur2-toshiba'. The term 'lpcopieur2-toshiba' must therefore be replaced by another name for another printer, unless otherwise stated all other information remains valid.

You can also consult the page 'CMAP printers list' to know all names and models.

  • Open the printing preferences (type system-config-printer in a terminal):

  • Select 'Protocole d'impression par internet (ipp)'

  • Enter the printer address : ipp://ipp.cmap.polytechnique.fr/printers/lpcopieur2-toshiba

  • For some printers, it will be necessary to select the manufacturer and model of the printer
