VMware Horizon View Client for Linux Help : Set Printing Preferences for the Virtual Printer Feature

Set Printing Preferences for the Virtual Printer Feature
The virtual printing feature lets end users use local or network printers from a View desktop without requiring that additional print drivers be installed in the View desktop. For each printer available through this feature, you can set preferences for data compression, print quality, double-sided printing, color, and so on.
Important
The virtual printing feature is available only with the version of Horizon View Client for Linux that is provided by third-party vendors. For more information about VMware thin-client and zero-client partners, see the VMware Compatibility Guide at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=vdm. This feature also has the following requirements:
The version of Horizon View Client for Linux must be 2.1 or later.
 
After a printer is added on the local computer, View adds that printer to the list of available printers on the View desktop. No further configuration is required. Users who have administrator privileges can still install printer drivers on the View desktop without creating a conflict with the virtual printer component.
Important
This feature is not available for the following types of printers:
You must disconnect the USB printer from the View desktop in order to use the virtual printing feature with it.
Selecting the Print to file check box in a Print dialog box does not work. Using a printer driver that creates a file does work. For example, you can use a PDF writer to print to a PDF file.
 
This procedure is written for a View desktop with a Windows 7 or Windows 8.x (Desktop) operating system. The procedure is similar but not exactly the same for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
