Installing TCP/IP type of ThinPrint Client Linux




  • Unpack the archive file thnuclnt-7.0.xy-linux.tar.gz and copy its contents into a local directory of the Linux computer.
  • Open the Terminal application and change to this directory.
  • Start the installer as root with:
./ (top arrow)

Installing ThinPrint Client Linux

The installer automatically identifies the processor architecture (bottom arrow) as well as the Linux distribution and then installs the software compilation that fits best.


  • Copy the config file thnuclnt.conf from the software’s download ZIP from Con­fig Files\tcpip or create a new one.
  • Move this file to the (hidden) subdirectory .thnuclnt (of the user’s home direc­tory) – i.e., to ~/.thnuclnt.

Configuring file thnuclnt.conf in the directory ~/.thnuclnt

This file should have the following content:

autoupdate = 15 
automap = true 
autoid = 0 
updatecount = 1 
editcount = 1 
connector tcpip 
protocol = listen 
interface = 
setdefault = true 

For more on this, see the Parameters section.
