Installing a Printer in Gnome

Occasionally, adding a printer through the default Gnome settings will fail without error. If this is the case, you can use the system-config-printer utility from Red Hat's printer administration tool.

Open a terminal then switch to the root user:

 > su

Now use Entropy to download the printer system configuration tool:

 # equo install system-config-printer-gnome --ask 
This should download system-config-printer-gnome package, as well as the dependencies system-config-printer-common and pycups.

Once the download and installation has completed, run the following command:

 # system-config-printer 

From here you should be able to add a printer with the add dialog.
