System Administration Guide: Solaris Printing

Adding Newly Discovered Printers From the Desktop

You can use OpenSolaris Print Manager to configure newly discovered directly attached or newly discovered network-attached printers from the desktop. By default, the system automatically discovers directly attached USB printers. The system also discovers network-attached printers, if the network device discovery service has been enabled. See How to Enable the Network Device Discovery Service.

Note –

In the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release, attempts to enable the HAL add-on module from the desktop or by using SMF commands, cause the system to revert to maintenance state. This problem does not occur if you are running a supported Solaris Express Community Edition release. To enable this service in the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release, you must first install the SUNWSmmgr package. For detailed instructions, go to
