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

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