initial v2 1 1 The 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. 2 2 3 **Printer discovery ** 3 **Printer discovery** 4 4 5 5 Everything 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. 6 6 7 7 There 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 9 9 - 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 10 10 - 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.
