How to Add Printer via IP Address in Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon?

Postby scaramanga9 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 6:15 pm

I am trying to add a printer via IP address in Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon.

When I try to add a printer via the Add Printer Tool, I get a message saying

Code: Select all

FirewallD is not running. Network printer detection needs services mdns, ipp, ipp-client, and samba-client enabled on firewall.


How do I add a printer via IP address? Thank you.

Mint 14 is not yet released, post problems with RC as requested at http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2205
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

They may fix this when 14 Final is out but in the mean time see if the original ( Gnome2 ) printer utility is installed:

Code: Select all

system-config-printer

If not then install the package that has that utility:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install system-config-printer-gnome

And run the "system-config-printer" command again.

FirewallD is a RedHat daemon and is not present in Debian / Ubuntu / Mint. This is Gnome's fault not Mint's.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
