GNU/Linux Fedora 40 Installing Wi-fi Printer – QuickStart Guide

Hi! The Tutorial shows you Step-by-step How to Set up and Configure a Wireless Printer in Fedora 40 GNU/Linux Desktop.

Especially relevant: to Setup Network Printer in Fedora 40 first we have to Install Printer Driver on System.

Most Network Printers support a Protocol known as Bonjour, which is a combination of zero-configuration networking (“ZeroConf”), multicast DNS (mDNS), and DNS service discovery (DNS-SD) standards.

So the first attempt for an Universal configuration is the Zeroconf Bonjour Avahi Linux Service implementation.

Else if you are principally interested to Share a Network Printer with Windows Clients you may instead follow instructions about the Samba Printing Sharing.

Finally, to Print over Wi-fi with Apple iOS and macOS Systems on this Printer then see How to Install AirPrint support on Fedora.
