I am quite new to the Applecript, but I have some experience in php and HTML. I’m trying to create a script/batch file that installs a network printer automatically.
Unfortunately, my script adds the printer, but it doesn’t work!
Can anyone give me some input? The information in the printer is the same as if I add it manually. But to add it manually, I have to add the advanced icon in the header of the add printer dialog.
This is my script so far
set thePrefix to "" set Username to "" set printerpass to "" set theIcon to note repeat display dialog thePrefix & "Please enter your HULT Online Username:" default answer Username with icon theIcon set Username to text returned of result try if Username = "" then error set Username to Username exit repeat on error set thePrefix to "INVALID ENTRY! " set theIcon to stop end try end repeat repeat display dialog thePrefix & "Please enter your current HULT E-Mail Password:" default answer printerpass with icon theIcon set printerpass to text returned of result try if printerpass = "" then error set printerpass to printerpass exit repeat on error set thePrefix to "INVALID ENTRY! " set theIcon to stop end try end repeat -- display dialog "Thank you for entering the Username " & Username & " and password " & printerpass & "." do shell script "lpadmin -p HULT_Printer -v smb://" & Username & ":" & printerpass & "@192.168.40.6/Hult_Printer_Mac -P /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/PrintCore.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Generic.ppd"
Any help is HIGHLY appreciated
