AIX Version 4.3 Guide to Printers and Printing

Printer Support

Support for each printer is provided as a separately installable package. To see a list of printers for which support has already been installed on your machine, type:

smit lssprt

To install support for additional printers, type:

smit printerinst

If your printer is not supported, you can configure it as a supported printer that is functionally similar to your printer. Otherwise, you can configure your printer as a generic printer. To do this:

  1. Select Other as the printer manufacturer or printer model when adding a print queue for the printer.


  2. Select Other serial printer or Other parallel printer when adding a printer device definition for the printer.
