CUPS: Common UNIX Printing System: Common Unix Printing System - Definitive Guide to the Printing System and Internet Printing Protocol (Sams White Book)
By: Michael Sweet.(Author)
The Common UNIX Printing System is quickly becoming the standard printing solution for Linux. This book provides you with detailed instructions on using, administering, and programming for the Common UNIX Printing System. In addition to the CUPS software, this book includes information and online downloads of many popular add-ons to CUPS that provide enhanced graphical interfaces and printer drivers.
CUPS: Common UNIX Printing System is first on the scene with CUPS documentation for installers, administrators, users, and programmers. One of the problems with UNIX is its spotty support for printers. Before the advent of the Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS), a particular printer needed a driver for, say, System V UNIX, and a separate driver for FreeBSD. The problem has become particularly pronounced now that Linux is becoming more popular as a desktop operating system, where it competes with Windows and other operating systems, under which printer installation is pretty easy. CUPS installs on all major UNIX and Linux flavours and handles the interface between printer and operating system. Driver writers can, therefore, write for CUPS and not worry about what's underneath. This book represents good work, and is a worthwhile guide and reference that goes beyond freely available online documentation.
