Using the WURprinter (new MFP's)

The official documentation for this is at:


(Follow )

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


will usually work.

You can download the exact correct ppd from openprinting

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

  • smb://
  • smb:// (for colour)


  • 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:// 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.
