33 The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) is a print spooler and
34 associated utilities. It is based on the "Internet Printing

357 Configuration of <application>Cups</application> is dependent on
358 the type of printer and can be complex. Generally, PostScript printers
359 are easier. For detailed instructions on configuration and use of
360 <application>Cups</application>, see <ulink
361 url="http://www.cups.org/documentation.php"/>. The Software
362 Administrators Manual and Software Users Manual are particularly useful.

365 <para>
366 For non-PostScript printers to print with
367 <application>Cups</application>, you need to install <xref linkend="gs"/>
368 to convert PostScript to raster images and a driver (e.g., from
369 <xref linkend="gutenprint"/>) to convert the resulting raster images to a
370 form that the printer understands.
371 <ulink url="http://www.linuxprinting.org/foomatic.html">Foomatic</ulink>
372 drivers use Ghostscript to convert PostScript to a printable form directly,
373 but this is considered to be a hack by <application>Cups</application>
374 developers.
