An article about configuring CUPS on FreeBSD.
An Introduction to the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS)
<primary>printing</primary>
<primary>CUPS</primary>
<application>CUPS</application>, the Common UNIX Printing System, provides a portable printing layer for <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark>-based operating systems. It has been developed by Easy Software Products to promote a standard printing solution for all <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark> vendors and users.
<application>CUPS</application> uses the Internet Printing Protocol (<acronym>IPP</acronym>) as the basis for managing print jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon (<acronym>LPD</acronym>), Server Message Block (<acronym>SMB</acronym>), and AppSocket (aka JetDirect) protocols are also supported with reduced functionality. <application>CUPS</application> adds network printer browsing and PostScript Printer Description (<acronym>PPD</acronym>) based printing options to support real-world printing under <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark>. As a result, <application>CUPS</application> is ideally-suited for sharing and accessing printers in mixed environments of FreeBSD, <trademark class="registered">Linux</trademark>, <trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> X, or <trademark class="registered">Windows</trademark>.
The main site for <application>CUPS</application> is <uri xlink:href="http://www.cups.org/">http://www.cups.org/</uri>.
Installing the CUPS Print Server
To install <application>CUPS</application> using a precompiled binary, issue the following command from a root terminal:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>pkg install cups</userinput>
Other optional, but recommended, packages are <package>print/gutenprint</package> and <package>print/hplip</package>, both of which add drivers and utilities for a variety of printers. Once installed, the <application>CUPS</application> configuration files can be found in the directory <filename>/usr/local/etc/cups</filename>.
Configuring the CUPS Print Server
After installation, a few files must be edited in order to configure the <application>CUPS</application> server. First, create or modify, as the case may be, the file <filename>/etc/devfs.rules</filename> and add the following information to set the proper permissions on all potential printer devices and to associate printers with the <systemitem class="groupname">cups</systemitem> user group:
