Add/Delete Printer in Red Hat Linux

To add a printer in Red Hat Linux, you can enter a command from the # prompt. You will need the print server name and the IP address to assign to the printer. You will need to login as root.

Below is an example (jd01=print device, 192.168.1.101=printer IP address):

# lpadmin  -p  jd01 -E  -v  socket://192.168.1.101  -m  raw  -D  “Printer Name/Model”

To delete a printer, you will need only the print device name. Example:

# lpadmin  -x  jd01
