Printing from Applications
There are many Linux applications from which you are allowed to print using the Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS). You can print from any of these
application on your machine.
1. From the application you are using, select Print from the File menu.
2. Select Print directly using lpr.
3. In the Dell LPR window, select the model name of your machine from the Printer list and click Properties.
4. Change the printer and print job properties.
The following four tabs display at the top of the window.
General: allows you to change the paper size, paper type, and orientation of the documents, enables the duplex feature, adds start and end
banners, and changes the number of pages per sheet.
Text: allows you to specify the page margins and set the text options, such as spacing or columns.
Graphics: allows you to set image options used when printing images/files, such as color options, image size, or image position.
Device: allows you to set the print resolution, paper source, and destination.
5. Click OK to apply the changes and close the Properties window.
6. Click OK in the Dell LPR window to start printing.
7. The Printing window appears allowing you to monitor the status of your print job.
To abort the current job, click Cancel.
You can print many different types of files on the Dell printer device directly from the command line interface using the standard CUPS way. The CUPS lpr utility
allows you do that, but the driver's package replaces the standard lpr tool with a much more user-friendly Dell LPR program.
