21.3.2. 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 the root 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 Printer Configuration tool (see Section 21.3.1, “Starting the Printer Configuration Tool”).
  2. Go to ServerNewPrinter.
  3. In the Authenticate dialog box, type the root user password and confirm.
  4. Select the printer connection type and provide its details in the area on the right.
