Hi,

I'm trying to set up a printer in OL8.5, but system-config-printer is not installable:

<code>[[email protected] ~]$ sudo dnf install system-config-printer

Last metadata expiration check: 1:26:39 ago on Fri 19 Nov 2021 15:51:19 CET.

No match for argument: system-config-printer

Error: Unable to find a match: system-config-printer

[[email protected] ~]$

</code>

And:

<code>

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo dnf search system-config-printer

I appreciate any advice.
