Adding a Printer - Linux

If this is your first time printing wirelessly from your laptop or your first time printing to a particular printer, you will need to install the printer on your computer and then after installing the printer you can print to it as often as you want.

  1. Find the printer you would like to use from one of the two drop-down menus below. Highlight and copy the ‘Printer Link’ for the desired printer (ex. http://print.newpaltz.edu:631/printers/SAB210-CLJ-5550)
