Connecting to Network Printer from Linux desktop

I am using Kubuntu Hardy for my office desktop and the printer is a network printer. To setup a new printer in Kubuntu, I need first to check the properties from a windows PC. In windows XP, go to Printers and Faxes, and right click the installed network printer there, then choose “Properties”. The following information are useful:

  • click “Sharing” tab and take note the “Share name”
  • click on the “Ports” tab and take note the IP address

After this go to your Kubuntu OS, and use the printer wizard. Choose TCP/IP printer, and enter the IP address as you have noted before. Follow the wizard until finish.
