Version 5 (modified by Antoine Martin, 6 years ago) (diff)




This feature is experimental in version 0.15.


  • the protocol and implementation may still change. See ticket #598.
  • by default the feature is disabled and you must enable printing in the global configuration file or on the command line
  • forwarding is only supported from MS Windows and Posix clients, and only when connecting to a Posix server. (support for MS Windows as server may be added in the future)
  • you may hit permission issues (the user running the xpra server must be a printer administrator)
  • you may hit issues with selinux (see #598 / #815)

Installation and platform support

  • centos will require some manual work (as the required RPM packages do not exist)
  • MS Windows and OSX clients (10.6 onwards) should work out of the box
  • Fedora 20+ should work out of the box
  • Debian and Ubuntu: the dependencies are listed as "suggestions" only

Usually, you will just need python-cups and cups-pdf.
