What is printer configuration and how to do it?
To ensure smooth functioning of your printer, you need to configure it accordingly as it affects the system's performance. While doing so, make sure that the printer and its related drivers and other software are perfectly compatible with the version of operating system that you are using and with each other as well. Installing the wrong device driver/software can hamper with the functioning of your printer and hence reduce the performance level as well as the life span of your printer. Once you have configured the printer, you can easily take colored or black and white prints of your favorite images, worksheets and more. At times, configuring you printer can become a tedious task.
Some of the problems faced while configuring it include:
- How can I configure my printer
- Printer works on Windows Vista but not on Linux/any other OS
- How can I hook up a printer using serial interface
How can I configure my printer
Check whether the printer and its driver are supported by the operating system installed on your PC. If it is compatible, then you need to run the printer installation wizard in order to install the printer on your system. Once you have accomplished this, you can now modify the settings of your printer in order to get the printouts as per your preference.
Printer works on Windows Vista but not on Linux/any other OS
A printer working on Windows Vista will not work on Linux or any other operating system because of the compatibility of its driver. To achieve this, one needs to reconfigure the printer in order to ensure maximum productivity from the printer.
How can I hook up a printer using serial interface
Connect the proper serial cable between the printer and the computer. The instructions provided by the printer’s manufacturer can provide you complete guidance.
