Printing on Linux

Before setting up your printers, please review the overview of Printing at ICERM.

The following instructions assume you are connected to the Brown University network via wireless (Brown, Brown-Guest, or eduroam).

Setup Instructions

1. Open the New Printer dialog, and select Network Printer → LPD/LPR.

2. Enter the hostname of the printer you wish to add, then click “Forward”.

  • 11th Floor Copier:
  • 10th Floor LaserJet A:
  • 10th Floor LaserJet B:

3. The OS may detect the printer software. If not, search for HP LaserJet Enterprise M610 for the 10th floor printers or Ricoh IM3500 for the 11th Floor Copier. If your system does not have these drivers installed, you may use the Generic PostScript Printer drivers.

4. All printers support duplexing (two-sided printing).

If you have questions about these instructions or require further assistance, please contact the ICERM IT staff by dropping by the administrative offices or emailing
