To start off in case that makes any difference: I am doing this from a live-usb-stick of 13.10 to check if everything works before actually installing Ubuntu and leaving Windows behind.
Printing on a network printer
I print via network but the print server only accepts certain usernames. The 'ubuntu' username obviously isn't one of them.
As being forced to call the ubuntu user the same as the user allowed for printing is just a dirty workaround (which I didn't try but assume would work) I looked for a solution, but I didn't find any option to manually set a username in the GUI. So I googled.
Changing the user
When printing with
lp -U username -d printername file.ext everything works.
But I couldn't make this work:
- when I create
User bobthis doesn't help
I am pretty new to Ubuntu and maybe there is something I forgot. Restart something? Add something else? How can I make this work?
