Raspberry Pi Working as AirPrint Server

As I just posted on Twitter, I have successfully gotten my Raspberry Pi to function as an AirPrint Server for ios devices. This allows any of the ios devices connected to my WiFi network to print to my network printers which do not support native AirPrint functionality. It was a bit convoluted to set up and did require a heavy usage of the terminal but in the end it was totally worth it! It took me about 35 minutes to setup (including the 2 minutes I spent wondering why the iPhone couldn’t find the printer before I realized the WiFi was off)!

A tutorial (with step by step instructions) and a video demonstration will be coming out on Saturday, so stay tuned!

      Well I don't know when your Pi is coming in – but my tutorial should be up on Tuesday, May 22! Glad that you are all interested. I'm working on it – in between studying for exams.
