How to install a printer - Linux

Because there is many different versions of Linux (Distros), unfortunately we cannot support and have guides to all of them. At Aarhus University we use Ubuntu, this means all guides below will be based around this.

Ubuntu GUI

Press the Power icon in the top right corner and press the Settings icon.
Press "Additional Printer Settings..."
Tryk på "Add"
Select "Windows Printer via SAMBA" and type "prt11.uni.au.dk/" and select "Browse..."
You will be prompted to login, type your AU<auid>. In the domain field write "UNI" and your password you use to Mail and mit.au.dk in the Password field.
You will get a list over printers, select the one you want. Please note: The printermodel is often written in the comments field.
Press "forward"
Select manufacturer or PPD you wish to use.
If you selected a manufacturer above, find the right model and driver and press "Forward"
Write a name for the printer and optionally a description and location.
You will be prompted to print a test document.
When you have done that, double click the new installed printer in the overview.
Right-click the print-job and select "Authenticate"
Under username write "UNI\au<auid>" and your password in the password field.

If you don't want to be prompted next time, select "Remember password"

Linux CLI

Method 1: Print a PostScript-Fil from the Terminal

(SAMBA Version: 3.6.23 or higher required!)

Example on printing the file:"golfer.ps" on the printer: "5123-300-C-2"

 $ smbclient //prt11.uni.au.dk/5123-300-c-2 -U au12345 -W uni -c "print golfer.ps"   

In case you login using Kerberos:
$ kinit au12345@UNI.AU.DK
Password for au12345@UNI.AU.DK:

You can avoid further validations using the parameter '-k':
$ smbclient //prt11.uni.au.dk/5123-300-c-2 -k -c "print golfer.ps"  

In case you want a simple print-command, you can make a script like the one below and put in on the machine. In this case we name the file `mylpr`:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/smbclient //prt11.uni.au.dk/$1 -U au12345 -W uni -c "print $2" 
exit 0  

The script needs the right permissions:
$ chmod 755 mylpr

Now you can print using the command mylpr
$ mylpr 5123-300-c-2 golfer.ps

Method 2: By using CUPS
