SAP printing problem with Linux-Mint-17.2 version..


In my scenario problem is :  Users are not able to print (SAP-ALV & SAP-Customized report) from Linux on USB local printer.

SOLUTION :- Here is the solution for SAP printing in Linux on local USB printer :-


1.   Run T-Code-SPAD

2.  Create New Printer–> Add Printer name-eg.: HPLJ

3.  Got to Utilities >> For Device Type >>Import

     Select  Device Type Radio button

4.  Import–(Download & Add new.PRI file for your Printer–like for HP-M40–printer:HPM401.PRI(Config File for HP-printing).

5.  Select Local package

6. Select Device Type: POST2   : PS lv.2 ISO Latin R4.54A+ONLY!

7. Access Method : G:Front end printing with Control Tech.

8. Fill the Host printer column with :-  __DEFAULT

9.  New printer is configured.

For assigning printer to the user in Linux :-


1.T-Code SU01

2. Select user: Open in Edit Mode.

3. Go to “Default” tab: Select New printer(which you add for Linux..)
