Unix Printer Commands (linux; kprinter)

linux understands both the Berkely lpr and the System V (lp) set of printer commands. Most distributions include a graphical-based utility allowing people more flexibility in their printing.


allows people to select which printer to use, and which properties to enable, all with the click of a mouse. It is part of the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) package, which also understands the lpr and lp commands.
