How do I print from my computer?

Windows XP/Vista computers
Open the web page at http://print.fbk.eu/printers. Select a printer and click on Connect. If installation fails: reopen the web page at http://print.fbk.eu/printers, select the printer and click on Properties, then copy the URL in Network Name. Open the printers folder, add a network printer that is not listed, paste the previously copied URL to the address field, install the right driver when requested.
Supported browser: Internet Explorer.

Linux computers
Open the web page at http://print.fbk.eu/printers. Select a printer and click on Properties, then copy the URL in Network Name. Install a new IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) printer and paste the previously copied URL to the address field.

Mac OS X computers
Install CUPS from the MacOSX DVD. Open the web page at http://print.fbk.eu/printers. Select a printer and click on Properties, then copy the URL found in Network Name. Open a new web page at http://localhost:631, select Administration panel then click on Add Printer, choose the Internet Printing Protocol (http) and click Continue, paste the previously copied URL into the connection field and press Continue, insert a name and select the right PPD (If you do not have the PPD file and the printer does not appear in the list you can try to find the PPD file here). The printer then should appear in System Preferences/Printers and Faxes.
