Printing software on Linux

Linux Standalone​

Linux printing from non-WIN account devices (e.g. laptops) ​requires the use of the PaperCut client. We provide a script to automate the installation - first open a Terminal then open a file browser window, click on 'Other Locations' at the bottom of the side-bar and in the Connect to Server box at the bottom enter smb://

When prompted for login details select 'Anonymous'. Drag the file '' to your terminal window and press Enter on your keyboard. If asked for a password provide your password if you have admin (sudo) rights, otherwise log into an admin account and try again. This will create a folder 'papercut' in your home folder containing the PaperCut Client - '' - you will need to run this script before you attempt to print.
