Editing Printer Settings

Editing Printer Settings

You also use the system-config-printer tool to edit the newly defined printers. To edit the printer settings, highlight the printer's listing in the printer browser window. You can then select specific settings related to that printer by using the tabs that appear in the right side of the dialog box. The Printer Options dialog, part of the printer settings, is shown in Figure 8.7.

FIGURE 8.7 Edit a printer's settings by using tabs in system-config-printer.

The first tab in this dialog enables you to assign a new description for the printer. In this example, the printer has the description OfficeJet Pro K5400. Other tabs in this dialog enable you to change the queue type or queue options (such as whether to print a banner page or set the image area of a page), to select or update the driver, or to set print job options (shown in Figure 8.8).

FIGURE 8.8 Configure how system-config-printer handles print jobs that are submitted to it using the Job Options tab.

When you make changes, make sure to click the Apply button in the bottom right-hand corner of system-config-printer in order to restart CUPS and for the changes to take effect. Click Quit from the Action menu when you're finished.
