These procedure shows how to define a print wheel or font cartridge that can be used with the printer.
On the print server, become superuser or assume an equivalent role.
Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
# print-server lpadmin -p printer-name -S hard-charset1[,hard-charset2...]
Specifies the name of the printer for which you are defining a print wheel or font cartridge.
Specifies the hardware character set name of the print wheel or font cartridge.
You can specify multiple hardware character sets with this command. Use commas or spaces to separate character set names. If you use spaces, enclose the list of character set names in quotation marks.
Define names that are meaningful to users. Inform the users of these names.
The print wheel or font cartridge definition is specified in the print server's /etc/lp/printers/printer-name/configuration file.
On a print client of the print server, log in as superuser, lp, or assume an equivalent role.
Define the same print wheel or font cartridge for the print client.
# print-client lpadmin -p printer-name -S hard-charset1, hard-charset2...
In this command, the variables are the same as the variables in Step 2.
The print wheel or font cartridge definition is added to the print client's /etc/lp/printers/printer-name/configuration file.
Verify that the print wheel or font cartridge is defined.
You should see the name of the character set and the notation (mounted).
# lpstat -p printer-name -l
The following example shows how to define the pica print wheel on the printer luna. The print client is named asteroid.
asteroid# lpadmin -p luna -S pica
