Install a network printer on Ubuntu 11.10 (64 bits) via CUPS

In Ubuntu 11.04 I could add network printers without problems, but now in 11.10, I cannot find network printers.

So I decided to install it via CUPS, installed by default in Ubuntu 11.10.

First, access the CUPS port via browser:


http://localhost:631

  •  Adding printers and classes
  • Add printer
  • Windows printer via SAMBA
  • In connection, type the name of the printer using socket protocol:
socket://printerhostname:9100
  • Add a name, and optionally a description and a location
  • In the next step select the make and model of the printer, or provide a PPD file.

And enjoy printing!
