6.0 Managing Print Jobs

Printers can either be connected to your system locally or accessed over a network. There are several ways to set up a printer in openSUSE: with YaST, with iPrint, or on the command line. There are also desktop tools in KDE or GNOME for setting up printers but we recommend to use either YaST (or iPrint???) for this task.

Refer to Section 2.5, Setting Up a Printer, (↑ Start-Up ) for detailed information how to configure printers with YaST. For information about how to manage printers with iPrint® refer to the iPrint User Guide at

NOTE: Troubleshooting

If you have problems configuring your printer, ask your system administrator. An in-depth coverage of printer configuration for administrators can be found in Section 9.0, Printer Operation, (↑ Reference ).

This chapter describes how to set up printers with the KDE Printing Manager. After configuring the printer correctly, you can address it from any application.
