Authenticate ID printers on managed Linux workstations

When printing on an ID printer for the first time, you have to save your n.ethz credentials in your keychain (you can manage your keychain with seahorse):

  • start system-config-printer from a terminal

  • right click on the printer, choose Properties
  • hit Print Test Page

  • in the password dialog, provide d\LOGIN in the username field, where LOGIN is your n.ethz login (in lowercase of course), and your password
  • check the 'Remember password' box and click OK
  • fetch the test page from your printer
