Re: kde application for users to set printer options?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



You have an old kde , you should consider to upgrade it , but if you don't want .... ll you can always use your browser to set your printer .....


just open firefox or your browser and go here

http://localhost:631/printers/

select your printer

then ..... on administration box select : set like server default

you can see here http://simplest-image-hosting.net/png-0-fn2058

btw ..... on kde 4.8.2 i have :

system settings => printer configuration => as you can see here i can't set the printer like default printer ...to solve that

kdesudo systemsettings

http://simplest-image-hosting.net/png-0-bw2058

again if you can't do that you can set your default printer using this method :

type lpoptions

you should see something like this

poptions
auth-info-required=none copies=1 device-uri=hp:/usb/Officejet_4500_G510g-m?serial=CN113F81FP05CQ finisets=none,none marker-change-time=0 number-up=1 printer-commands=none printer-info='HP Officejet 4500 Ged=true printer-location=pavillion printer-make-and-model='HP Officejet 4500 g510g-m, hpcups 3.11.7' pinter-state-reasons=paused printer-type=167948 printer-uri-supported=ipp://localhost:631/printers/Offi

to set your printer like default in my case . using the name you can extract from this line device-uri=hp:/usb/Officejet_4500_G510g-m?serial=CN113F81FP05CQ

lpoptions -d “Officejet_4500_G510g-m”

you can use sudo before lpoptions if you can't set it like normal user.

We have many printers and people need to set their default printer.

Also we have large multifunction printers that need account codes and a lot of
other options.
To make it manageable people set up instances with sets of options for various
projects.

Using kde  3.5 could do it all in Control Center  with a nice user interface.
I can't seem to find any way to get the job done in kde 4.4.

The best I can find so far is using xpp.

Is there anything available?

John
