I am trying to connect to a network printer that is a Toshiba e-Studio3505AC. At first I tried doing it through
System Settings > Printers > Add > Network Printer > Find Network Printer. I entered the host address but wasn't sure what to select for
Connection. Based on what I was able to find online, it seems that it is supposed to be one of the
LPD/LPR queue options; but which one isn't clear. Based on other things I found online, I assumed it was
LPD/LPR queue ''. Clicked
Forward. When using
Select printer from database, I select
Toshiba (recommended) then click
Forward. I look though the list and it isn't there. When using
Search for a printer driver to download, it just finds Toshiba e-Studio350. So I figured I needed the PPD.
Here are the two issues.
- The shell script wants me to restart my lpd. However, I am having trouble finding directions on how to do that. I can find a lot about lpd including the manpage, discussions of what it is, etc. but nothing about how to restart it.
- The installation guide says the linux users still need to add the printer via the OS's printer management tool. I am assuming that is what I used in my earlier attempts. When I do that, there is no change in what happens.
