How do I install Princh on our public PC's? (Linux)

Princh has a software called Princh Cloud Printer (PCP) that can be installed on public PC's to make it even easier for patrons to print

  1. On the Linux machine, open up the terminal.
  2. Run the following commands:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:princh/stable
    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install princh
  3. Once these commands has run correctly, start the installation by using this command:

    Now an installation window will appear and here you have to enter a printer name, a printer ID, and a description. When you're done, click "Create printer(s)"
  4. When the printer(s) have been installed, it's important to make sure that princh-daemon starts automatically when a user logs on the PC. This can be done, adding a symlink to the user with this command:
    ln -s /usr/share/applications/com-princh-print-daemon.desktop ~/.config/autostart/
  5. Now you can test the software by trying to make a print. Make sure you're selecting the printer(s) you just installed.
