Hey sorry for the late response. All you need to do is go to Settings —–> Devices —–> Printers, and then click on the ‘Unlock’ button which will be at the top of the window by the close button. Enter your Admin password and make sure the printer is on and connected to the network. It will then bring up a window searching for a printer connected to the network, and after a couple of seconds, it should find and recognize the printer. Again, sorry for the late response. I hope this helps out. If there is any more trouble, feel free to contact me. Have a great day! 🙂

Hi there TLG, thanks for your reply.

I got the one printer connected and working no problem at all there, an old Epson Stylus CX5200). Its device URI is parallel:/dev/usb/lp0

Now trying to connect this Brother QL-570 label printer, again connected using a spare usb port next to my other printer at the back of the PC, i’m thinking its driver related because there’s no specific drivers in the menu for this printer by the looks of it. The printer shows up in the settings wizard, but the drivers seems to be generic and my printer is not listed in the Brother menu. Thanks in advance for you help.
