Hello,
I installed boomaga a few days ago and after some restarts I started to wonder where the printer is... So I started to dig in your site and finally found this:
https://github.com/Boomaga/boomaga/wiki/Instalation#installing-the-printer

Not so nice to hide this fundamental step so deep. :-(

Soo, it would be nice if:
a) boomaga would actually install the printer itself upon the first launch (best solution)

b) boomage would display an explaining message upon first launch AND a clickable/copyable link to the script folder, so a user can conveniently open the folder in his file manager and launch the script (As of now I'm still looking for the folder...).

Thanks.

Actually it seems, like I'm missing the script file completly. Where exactly should it be stored /usr/... ?

And now I'm stuck at adding the printer:
What exactly shoud I do here: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/12/19/plasma-windowedyJ2019.png ?
(Using KDE SC 4.11)

What distribution you are use? How do you install the program, from the sources, or from the package?

If you build the program from the sources, you can find installPrinter.sh scripts in the scripts subdirectory on sources tree. https://github.com/Boomaga/boomaga/blob/master/scripts/installPrinter.sh

If you installed the program from the package and printer wasn't installed, this is a bug in the package. Package must install the printer during the installation process.

Thank you for pointing my mistake, I forgot to add a paragraph about the printer to the README.md.
And, I'll think about "add printer" button in the program.

Ah, ok.
I got it via my distribution (Chakra). FYI, here is the forum thread:

I can't find PKGBUILD for Chakra. I looked PKGBUILD for Arch. It doesn't contains section for installing printer. I don't know is PKGBUILD support such feature. It would be better if the package maintainer contact with me.

Just now, as a hotfix, you can download installPrinter.sh from git and run it.

Just one addition:
for the installPrinter script it would be nice, if it would either require or hint for sudo. Or there should be a reasonable error output. Currently when you run it without sudo, it still says "Printer Boomaga has been installed successfully", although it didn't.
