  • Publication number: 20200348893
    Abstract: A mobile terminal device executes an OS including a printing system that supports a first search protocol and a printing function using a first printing method as a standard. If instructions for the use of the printing system included in the OS are provided by the user, the mobile terminal device receives a message conforming to the first search protocol from a printer that has been newly detected via the first search protocol. In a case where the detected printer has been selected, if the printer is determined not to conform to the first printing method based on the contents of the received message, the mobile terminal device activates a function for downloading a plug-in that supports the printer.
