-If you really want to do yourself: +
- +
-Root/Admin privileges: might be needed if you need to install new drivers +
- +
-Install the printer drivers yourself, and then install the printer by using its hostname. +
-When choosing the printer driver, I suggest either PS or PCL. The result may vary depending on the printer. +

-This may vary depending on the printer vendor, and Linux may or may not have the drivers. +
-A list of tested working drivers is provided [[#​Drivers|here]] +
- +

- +
-  socket://<​printer FQDN>:​9100 +
-or +
-  http://<​printer FQDN> +
-   +
-e.g. +

-  socket://​lw1.hep.lu.se:​9100 +
-  http://​clw2.hep.lu.se +
