  The "Official Documentation" for Ubuntu 16.04 does not include correct
  instructions on installing Printers.

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  The "Official Documentation" for Ubuntu 16.04 does not include correct
  instructions on installing Printers.

  Following the Official Documentation guides for Ubuntu 16.04 (see

  Ubuntu 16.04 Official Printing Documentation

  Ubuntu 16.04 Official Documentation:

  There is no Network Printer installation guide, but there should be. MOST 
desktop users now use network printers at home, small offices, and companies. 
Most printing in my experience is networked, not local. Most network printing 
is IP based printing, and users in Windows and Mac can easily install a network 
printer by providing its IP address and selecting the printer. Or installing 
the driver, then selecting the printer when adding the network printer by IP.

  Note: Many companies (and most home networks) use direct IP printing
  from the client, and do not forward print jobs to a print server.

  The Official Guide should include steps to clearly install a network
  printer for Ubuntu Desktop via IP address.

  I am reporting this here as the Official Doco pages state "To report
  errors in this documentation, file a bug."
