Next step is to tell CUPS you want to print through SAMBA. See the short manual at http://mumford1.dyndns.org/~bs7452/linuxhelp/cups.html (basically you have to add a symbolic link so CUPS can find smbspool).

Leave out the -W WUR setting. The Gnome GUI is not able to deal with workgroups. When you cannot reach the printer make sure your samba workgroup is set to WUR. Open the smb.conf file, and find the following lines:

Try it again and make sure that it is able to connect (exit with exit).

Install the printer:

* Select the printer model

* Right click on the printer -> properties, to select double-sided printing and to print a test page

Using the WURprinter (new MFP's)

The official documentation for this is at: http://www.wur.nl/upload_mm/d/f/f/a0f788b8-d197-4d1d-afb5-80c84bb7b1e9_printing_Linux_UK.pdf

Ubuntu/Debian

(Follow https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkPrintingWithUbuntu#Printing_from_Ubuntu )

If you don't have access to the printing dialog, then the shell command:

   system-config-printer

will usually work.

You can download the exact correct ppd from openprinting https://www.openprinting.org/ppd-o-matic.php?driver=pxlcolor-Ricoh&printer=Ricoh-MP_C4503

Adding a printer by using "add a Windows printer via SAMBA", then using

  • smb://scomp5170.wurnet.nl/WURprinter

OR

  • smb://scomp5170.wurnet.nl/WURprinter_Color (for colour)

then:

  • Your WUR login details (wur\user001, passwd).
  • Model: Ricoh MP C4503 PXL

This will ONLY work from a wired, wur-user wifi and eduroam. Only eduroam users will have scomp5170 resolved to a different ip. Nonetheless it will work.

You can (theoretically) use smb://scomp5170.wur.nl/WURprinter from eduroam connections, but so far this seems not to work properly.


If this does not work, a generic postscript version can be added by adding:

  • smb://scomp5170/WURprinter_PS
  • Your WUR login details (wur\user001, passwd).
  • Model: Generic PostScript Printer

Other Linux

It should be possible to set up CUPS with the above information.
