The Local Printers tab controls the behavior of local printers.
You can change the following preferences:
When a new printer is connected:
Show Printer Properties window
This setting is the default. If unchecked, a panel notification icon and message is displayed for a few seconds. From here, you can click the icon to open the Printer Queue Properties dialog.
When a printer is disconnected:
Show notification message
Check this setting to receive a notification message when a local printer goes offline. Otherwise, you will not receive any notification.
When a printer is reconnected:
Ask before printing pending documents
If this setting is selected, when a local printer is reconnected, and its printer queue contains any documents to be printed, the queue is paused and an alert is shown.
