    Smile Can't Change IP Address on Printer



    This is an image of th printer settings on Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon. Where it says "IP Address" I want to change those long words to the IP Address of the printer howerver I cant click on it, when I go into Options the only option I have is "allow users". I installed the printer drivers and everything needed. Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon needs to update this.

    I used to be able to do this on Ubuntu and Linux Mint 14 MATE, however on Cinnamon there doesnt seem to be an option for this. Is there any way I can edit this via a terminal, or edit a notepad file where this is stored?

    Please respond ASAP. Thanks!

    The printer app in gnome-shell and Mint is very limited. Luckily, the gnome 2 app is still available in repository and still used on Xubuntu. It's called system-config-printer-gnome and once installed can be opened from terminal using "system-config-printer". Launch the app, right-click the printer icon, select 'properties'. 'Device URI' is the printer address.

    Cinnamon has made mostly good choices for apps installed by default. Perhaps they'll re-think this.

    Thanks, I already had this installed (so I am guessing Linux mint installs the features but just doesnt use it....idk why, this has the most features). I just ran system-config-printer and it loaded up! Thanks!
