Printing from ubuntu

For printing from ubuntu we need the following packages. Usually it is given in latest ubuntu.

cupsys foomatic-filters-ppds smbclient

After installing them by apt-get install we need some configuration change.

If this /etc/cups/supsd.conf exists then need to change the following line

Listen :631

And put entry Allow all in the following section of the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file

Restrict access to the server

Restrict access to the Admin page

Restrict access to the configuration file

Now restart your cups server by executing /etc/init.d/cups start

Open your browser and type

http://localhost or IP :631

You will now find a web utility and provide the correct info there and you are done.

N.B. During configuration you must select the option “Windows printer by samba”
