I need to install a network printer. I use Ubuntu 18.04. I typed:

$ sudo system-config-printer

But I got:

sudo: system-config-printer: command not found

How can I bring the printer configuration GUI? I want to add a printer using the GUI.

  • Please add output of apt-cache policy system-config-printer to the question.
