View Full Version : Detect all parallel/NIC/USB printers installed

January 31st, 2010, 04:56 AM
This is my first post here and im a newbie to Linux/Ubuntu. I need help in writing a Shell Script/ C program which may or may not use any command line tool to detect the list of parallel/NIC/USB printers installed on the system and print them on the screen or to a text file. Please guide me on how to do this. I have read that there is a printer conf tool in ubuntu which detects the printers. Hoping to hear from you. My email is r.sankaran21@gmail.com Thankyou.
