Printer Installation

Modern Linux distributions usually include two different print systems. The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) or the LPR system. CUPS is a relative newcomer to printing on Linux systems being but a few years old but is a easy to configure and supports both postscript and non postscript printers. The LPR system support for non-postscript printers is more difficult. It can be accessed by pointing the browser to the loopback or localhost connection port 631 (http://localhost:631) after installing the cups package and starting the cups server.

Webmin likewise has a browser based configuration panel for setting up printers with the LPR system. After selecting the hardware screen then selecting Printer Administration, a screen like that in Figure 371 will be presented. From this screen the printer can be named and the various options selected, including the printer location either a local port (parallel, serial, or USB) or the network printer address. Note that this printing System does not well support non-postscript printers. If the available printer is a non-postscript printer that it is suggested that the CUPS printing system be used.
