GNU/Linux Mint Installing AirPrint – Quick-Start Guide
Hi! The Tutorial Shows You Step-by-step How to Install AirPrint Service in Mint 18.x/19.x/20.x GNU/Linux Desktop.
The AirPrint Server was devised by Apple Inc to enable an iPhone, an iPad, an iPod Touch or a Mac, to print without having to Install Drivers on the Client Device.
More and more new Printers come with Firmware to support AirPrint. In fact, it would be unusual nowadays for a network-aware printer not to provide AirPrint support.
Especially relevant: there are two Technologies central to the AirPrint facility on a Printer:
The Printer must be advertised with Bonjour broadcasting.
The printer must communicate with the client using the IPP Protocol.
Moreover, the IPP Protocol is supported from most Network Printers and the Zeroconf Bonjour Avahi Linux Service implementation is available on most GNU/Linux Systems.
Finally, as a mandatory for the AirPrint Setup follow instructions to check if the Printer is correctly Installed on the GNU/Linux System.
1. Launching Terminal App

sudo apt update
