Part 4: old printer as wireless network printer using #cups and your #raspberry pi

TinkerTable has a built in HP Deskjet 940c printer, old but reliable and with this setup it's a super useful wireless network printer:


install cups for printing
    sudo apt-get install cups
give user permission to print
    sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi 

to print remotely enable:
sudo cupsctl --share-printers --remote-admin

from a browser log into your cups server: <YOURPISIP>:631/admin
add your printer to cups, (log in with your pi account) and default values in the cups management console

Install your printer on your windows pc
-->Devices and Printers--> Add Printer--> Printer isn't listed --> Select a shared printer by name--> http://<myPi IP Address>:631/printers/HPDeskjet940c
