-The best is to book a time with me if you need to install. +This documentation ​is still to be writtenPlease use [#evil_and_time-consuming ​|solution 4)above for Linux. 
- +For Windows or Mac it is recommended to connect ​to the printer directly at the moment, as the print server is not fully compatible with non-linux systems yet.
-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]+
- +
-All you need to do is to provide ​the hostname of the printerIn most cases it will work if you use +
- +
-  socket://<​printer FQDN>:​9100 +
-or +
-  http://<​printer FQDN> +
-   +
-e.g. +

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