Common UNIX Printing System Printing

Mac OS X 10.2 introduced a new printing architecture to the Macintosh, CUPS or the Common UNIX Printing System. Some may be familiar with CUPS from various Linux/BSD distributions, well it is the very same! CUPS is very extensible and powerful, see how to print to unsupported USB (and other printers) printers via gimp-print.

Dan will demonstrate how to setup IPP and HP Socket (JetDirect) printers along with the command-line and web based tools that CUPS provides.
