Linux Operating System
You can configure the thin client for local printing from some local applications, such as an Internet
browser, or for plain ASCII text printing. The printer must be recognized by the Linux operating system
and properly configured.
Terminal Services Printing Support
If the local client supports and detects the printer, full function printing using port redirection through Citrix
ICA is supported for parallel and USB printers if the appropriate printer driver is loaded on the terminal
server. Please check printer documentation to ensure that Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server is
supported by your printer.
Local printing from rdesktop is not supported, as the current version of rdesktop does not provide for
printer port redirection from the server to the client.
While running an ICA or rdesktop session, you cannot print from a local application. The terminal server
session has control of the printer port and will not release to the local application. The user must
disconnect from the terminal server session to release the printer port back to the local client.
