I need to install a network printer Kyocera ECOSYS M2035dn in Kubuntu 16.04. There are several identical printers in our local network:

In file properties, there is no IP address of these devices:

When I try to add a printer through CUPS page, there is also no information about ip address:

I could try adding all printers and print the test page, but I don't want to disturb my colleagues. How can I add a printer, knowing its IP address?

    KM3C991.local seems to be the name of your printer, try the command ping -c1 KM3C991.local, it should show the ip of the printer. – pim Feb 28 '18 at 11:01
  • Oh thank you! All printers are pinged well, and now I can find my printer. You can make this an answer, I'll mark it solved. – Michael O. Feb 28 '18 at 11:05

KM3C991.local is the name of your printer on your network.

ping -c1 KM3C991.local will show you the IP address of the printer.
