How does one print from a Windows computer?
Windows 7 Home Premium:
- Go to "Start," type "regedit.exe" and run it, clicking "yes" when prompted
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
- Right click to add a DWORD registry value in Lsa named "LmCompatibilityLevel," and set the value to 2
- Go to "Start" again, type "cmd.exe" and run it
- In the command prompt, type "start \\irk.berkeley.edu\[printer_queue_name]" and enter. If you receive a "Network not found" error, you may have to connect to through an ethernet cable instead of AirBears2. For a list of printer queue names, see the printer table.
- You may be asked to choose a driver. In that case, select the driver that corresponds with your printer model and click "Ok". If the model does not appear in the list, you can download it from the HP website
- When prompted, enter your Samba username and password (if you don't have one, ask Bill for an account)
- Go to "Start" and type "Add a printer" to add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer. Select "the printer I want isn't listed"
- Click on "Select a shared printer by name" and type in your printer name "\\irk.berkeley.edu\queue_name"
- If you are asked to select a driver again, do so
- Name your printer or just give it the default name, and click next. At this point, you should be able to successfully print a test page
