Printing From the Applications
When you have finished setting up the queue you can print jobs from the applications. Start the print job from the
application, and specify the queue in the print dialog box.
However, sometimes you can print only from the default queue depending on the application (for example Mozilla).
In these cases, before you start printing, set queue you want to print to as the default queue. For information on
specifying the default queue, see "Setting the Default Queue."
Setting the Default Queue
You can set the default queue when you add the printer.
1 Select Computer→ More Applications..., and select YaST on the Application Browser.
2 Type the administrator password, and click Continue.
YaST Control Center is activated.
3 Select Hardware on YaST Control Center, and select Printer.
The Printer Configurations dialog box opens.
4 Click Edit.
A dialog box to modify the specified queue opens.
5 Confirm that the printer you want to set is selected in the Connection list.
6 Select the Default Printer check box.
7 Confirm the settings, and click OK.
Specifying the Printing Options
You can specify the printing options such as color mode.
