36.9. Modifying Existing Printers

To delete an existing printer, select the printer and click the Delete button on the toolbar. The printer is removed from the printer list. Click Apply to save the changes and restart the printer daemon.

To set the default printer, select the printer from the printer list and click the Default button on the toolbar. The default printer icon appears in the Default column of the default printer in the list. A IPP browsed queue printer can not be set as the default printer in the Ferramenta de Configuração da Impressora. To make an IPP printer the default, either add it as described in Seção 36.2 and make it the default or use the GNOME Print Manager to set it as the default. To start the GNOME Printer Manager, select Main Menu => System Tools => Print Manager. Right-click on the queue name, and select Set as Default. Setting the default printer in the GNOME Print Manager only changes the default printer for the user who configures it; it is not a system-wide setting.

After adding the printer(s), the settings can be edited by selecting the printer from the printer list and clicking the Edit button. The tabbed window shown in Figura 36-12 is displayed. The window contains the current values for the selected printer. Make any necessary changes, and click OK. Click Apply in the main Ferramenta de Configuração da Impressora window to save the changes and restart the printer daemon.
