Kubuntu features the impressive KDE Printing Manager, which sports a host of
useful features. Click on the K
Menu button in your Toolbar and choose -> to start the Printing Manager Control Module. You can add, or connect
to, a printer using this module.
To add a printer, click
-> to launch the Add Printer Wizard, which
will walk you through the process of adding a local printer or connecting to a
printer on your network.
Follow the directions presented in the Wizard to add a local printer or connect to
a printer on your network.
You may need to click the Administrator Mode button
before making changes to your printer settings.
If you'd like to see an icon in your System Tray when
there are pending print jobs, start KJobViewer, which
you will find in ->->. Clicking on the tray icon when it
appears during printing will bring up a dialogue that will allow you to easily
move, pause, and cancel print jobs. Note that the tray icon is only present
while you are in the process of printing a document(s).
