In order to have your desired printers available when using VMware Horizong from a Linux computer, you have to create a login script that adds the printers when you login. Keep in mind that the more printers you add, the longer this process will take so it’s recommended that you only add the printers you need.

Create a file called $netlog.bat in your  U:\public space on a Bucknell Windows computer. The contents of that file should look like this:

if "%COMPUTERNAME:~0,4%"=="VDI-" (
  rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /in /n \\pharos-ps1-prd\BUBWPrint
  rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /in /n \\pharos-ps1-prd\BUColorPrint
)

You can add or change the printers you want to add by modifying or copying the lines that start with rundll32. The name of the printer appears at the end of the line (e.g. \\pharos-ps1-prd\BUBWPrint). If you don’t know the path to the printer you need, please contact ecst@bucknell.edu with the location of the printer and we’ll help you identify the printer name/path.
