Printers

Printing from fully managed Linux clients is configured automatically for hosts in MacLean or Schaeffer or by request for systems outside those buildings.

Printers are no longer browseable and are only accessible by communicating with the ITS provided print queues listed below.

Self-managed linux systems can be configured manually by using the information in the following tables to add print queues using the command line tool lpadmin or using the cups web interface or other system provided printing configuration tools. Alternately a script is available that will create print queues provided supporting packages are installed first. lpadmin.sh This script might depend on system packages for correct functioning of the created print queues but it downloads a tarball of ppds to use when creating the queues in order to use identical ppds provided with Fedora. Therefore you should install these packages or their equivalent on your system.

Mac OS

Self managed systems/personal systems can use these instructions to add departmental printers to their system.  Or submit a ticket and Brian will help add them.

Windows 10

RedHat/CentOS/Fedora

yum install hpijs hplip cups-lpd

Ubuntu (possibly Debian)

apt install cups-client lprng curl printer-driver-hpijs hplip hpijs-ppds printer-driver-pxljr hp-ppd openprinting-ppds foomatic-db-compressed-ppds printer-driver-hpcups

sudo chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups /usr/lib/cups/filter

Then invoke the script like so (for all CS printers):

./lpadmin.sh CS
