How do I add printers in Ubuntu (Linux)?

To add printers in Ubuntu, please do the following:
 
  1. In the Search Menu, search for Printers.  Once the search results have come back, select printers.  The printer options menu will open. Alternatively, click System Settings.  Then click Printers.
  2. In the printer options menu, click the add button.
  3. Expand Network Printer and click AppSocket/HP JetDirect.  Enter the host name of the printer.  A list of printer names can be found at the bottom of the article.  All network printers are on the printer.rose-hulman.edu subdomain.  Example: type crapo2.printer.rose-hulman.edu  Click Forward.
  4. In the Choose Driver menu, scroll down through the list of Makes and click HP.   Then click Forward.
  5. Most of the network printers are HP 9040dn printers, so scroll to the LaserJet 9040dn.  You should check the actual printer you want to install before choosing a printer driver.  Use the recommended driver unless you have a good reason to choose one of the others.  Click Forward.
  6. In the Installable Options menu, click Duplex Unit.  Then click Forward.
  7. In the Describe Printer menu, choose a short printer name such as Moench Commons.  For description (optional) you can list the type of printer that you are connecting to. For location (optional) a printer location can be listed.  After this information has been added, click Apply.
  8. Click Print Test Page to verify successful printer installation.
  9. The printer’s properties will be displayed, click OK to close.
