    Printer missing from Yast ---> Hardware

    Hi,

    Running SLED 11sp3 with the Gnome desktop. I want to do some basic printing (mostly PDF and emails) to an IP printer. When I go to "YaST" and then "Hardware" there is no "Printer" listed. How do I now configure printing or put the printer icon back into YaST.

    Regards
    John

    Hi
    Setup your printer via the cups interface with a web browser,
    http://localhost:631 when adding the printer enter root/root password
    when it asks.

    Hi,

    The modules "cups-client" and "cups-libs" is installed on the thin client. I have tried the "http://localhost:631" and "http://printer_ip:9100" but no joy. I am trying to print to an IP printer on the local LAN. Oh, and I am logged in a "root"

    Regards
    John

    Hi
    It's either one of;
    Code:
    Examples:
    http://hostname:631/ipp/
    http://hostname:631/ipp/port1
    
    ipp://hostname/ipp/
    ipp://hostname/ipp/port1
    
    lpd://hostname/queue
    
    smb://servername/printer
    smb://username:password@workgroup/servername/printer
    
    socket://hostname
    socket://hostname:9100
    I would find a system that has cups running and see if you can use cups
    there to setup, then duplicate to the thin client. Plus there is
    extensive help via the cups web interface.

    No firewalls in the way etc? I'm assuming you can ping the printer from
    the client?

    Try installing the yast2-printer package (zypper install yast2-printer), this should add the Printer option to YaST.
