Printer Setup: Linux

The following instructions assume you are connected to the Brown University network via wireless (Brown, Brown-Guest, or eduroam).

All ICERM public printers should work on Ubuntu, Red Hat, and other common Linux distributions. This includes the 11th floor copier and the two 10th floor LaserJets. These settings should allow you to add these printers to your Linux OS.

Available Printers

Printer Hostname Location
11th Floor Copier Behind the reception desk on the 11th floor
10th Floor Laserjet A 10th Floor Print Room
10th Floor Laserjet B 10th Floor Print Room

Setup Instructions

1. Open the New Printer dialog, and select Network PrinterLPD/LPR.

2. Enter the hostname of the printer you wish to add, then click “Forward”.

  • 11th Floor Copier:
  • 10th Floor LaserJet A:
  • 10th Floor LaserJet B:

3. The OS may detect the printer software. If not, search for HP LaserJet P4015 for the 10th floor printers or Canon iR6055/6065 for the 11th Floor Copier. If your system does not have these drivers installed, you may use the Generic PostScript Printer drivers.

4. All printers support duplexing (two-sided printing).

Notes About Printing

  • All ICERM printers support duplex (double-sided) printing.
  • The ICERM printers use US LETTER/LTR 8.5×11 sized paper. Please choose this paper size when installing a printer or printing a document.
  • If you use a VPN, you must disconnect from your VPN to access the printers.

If you have questions about these instructions or require further assistance, please contact the ICERM IT staff by dropping by the administrative offices or emailing
