If you wish to install printers one at a time you can follow the same instructions for laptops above, however if your desktop is on the Purdue computer network permanently and never used with personal home printers you can simply set your machine to talk directly to your department's CUPS server if it has one.

echo "ServerName <address of cups server>/version=1.1" > ~/.cups/client.conf

orOr, if you have administrative access to the machine:

sudo bash
echo "ServerName <address of cups server>/version=1.1" > /etc/cups/client.conf
