  • Linux Lite: 3.2 32bit
I noticed when I booted the LinuxLite 3.2 from a CD that there is no printer installed (which is good) yet when I downloaded a PDF from email, and opened it in the default PDF viewer, there is an option from the menu to Print then PRINT-TO-FILE.

Great option but does anyone know where is the config file to change the default print-to-file location as to aim it to a server? This way the user can always have it saving the print-to-file (PDF) to a specific folder.

Thanks for any help :)

  • Linux Lite: 4.8 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-5300U (-HT-MCP-)

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics

  • Kernel: 4.x
When you print to file, the "File:" section (under the General tab of the Print popup window) is where you tell your output to print.  You can also give your output a new name and Output format (PDF, Postscript, or SVG) at that point.

Thanks, I appreciate it and I know that. I know we can click a location each time we print. The question was how do I set a default location. I am thinking of setting up some public PC's and each PC will have a different default folder on the server to save it to.
