Chapter 6. Printing

 < Day Day Up > 

Mac OS X offers a rich and flexible set of tools for administering and using a wide variety of printers. Common Unix tools such as lpr, lpq, and lprm are here as well, along with a few new ones just for Mac OS X.

This chapter starts out with a basic discussion of how to use the Printer Setup Utility (/Applications/Utilities), a GUI tool for configuring local and network printers. Then we'll move on to discuss the Mac OS X implementations of the Unix printing tools. In particular, we will discuss the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS), Gimp-Print, and HP InkJet Server (HPIJS).
