  • Ticket #16318 – Description

    initial v2  
    11The printing user experience in Haiku is bad. Let's fix that! This ticket is a starting point for better printing support. There are many things to fix, but I wanted to gather the info in a single place at first.

    3 **Printer discovery**
     3**Printer discovery (#6795)**

    55Everything in Haiku is hot-plug. Connect anything to an USB port and it will start working immediately. But printers must be added manually through the printer preferences. This should not be the case.

    77There are 4 things to take care of:
    8 - Network printers: should use mdns and dns-sd (aka Bonjour/Zeroconf) to discover the printer automatically
     8- Network printers: should use mdns and dns-sd (aka Bonjour/Zeroconf) to discover the printer automatically (#1042)
    99- USB: already enumerated in the "transports" when adding a printer, but should use the vendor/device ID to automatically configure the printer with the correct driver
    1010- Virtual printers: I think they should be added automatically. When the PDF printer add-on is installed, make it available as a printer by default.
