I'm trying to figure out how to add a local printer on the HP Thin Client t5145 so I can use it for LPD printing. The local OS on the thin client is linux. I'm trying to print from a RDP session on win2003server. On the older model thin clients there was a check box for "enable LPD printing" for the printer. I cannot find this option anywhere on the thin client. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Which OS are you running on the thin client? Is it an XPe device? Linux? – Brian Knoblauch Jun 2 '09 at 15:21

I guess I'm just accustomed to our old thin clients. After I added the printer as a lpd port, I never rebooting the thin client. That was the problem. As soon as I rebooted the thin client and re-added the lpr ports on the server, everything worked fine. Slap myself for not trying the faithful reboot.
