33 The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) is a print spooler and
34 associated utilities. It is based on the "Internet Printing
35 Protocol" and provides printing services to most PostScript
36 and raster printers.

343 Normally, printers are set up via a web browser. The
344 <application>Cups</application> server will normally connect via
345 the url http://localhost:631. From there printers, print
346 jobs, and the server configuration can be set up and managed.
347 Remote system administration can also be set up. Configuration
348 can also be done from the command line via the
349 <command>lpadmin</command>, <command>lpoptions</command>,
350 and <command>lpstat</command> commands.
351 </para>
352
353 <para>
354 Configuration of <application>Cups</application> is dependent on
355 the type of printer and can be complex. Generally, PostScript printers
356 are easier. For detailed instructions on configuration and use of
357 <application>Cups</application>, see <ulink
358 url="http://www.cups.org/documentation.php"/>.
359 </para>
360
361 <para>
362 For non-PostScript printers to print with
363 <application>Cups</application>, you need to install <xref
364 linkend="gs"/> to convert PostScript to raster images and a driver
365 (e.g. from <xref linkend="gutenprint"/>) to convert the resulting
366 raster images to a form that the printer understands. <ulink
367 url="http://www.linuxprinting.org/foomatic.html">Foomatic</ulink>
368 drivers use <xref linkend="gs"/> to convert PostScript to a printable
369 form directly, but this is considered suboptimal by
