> CUPS is a printing system. What does it mean?
> In Linux, printers are represented as queues. Each queue can be a
different
> printer, or the same printer with different configurations. When you print
> something, you send the file to a server in memory. This server processes
the
> file and sends it to the required queue. It is nice because local
printers,
> remote printers (of whatever kind) just look the same for the user.
> This server is CUPS (it could be LPRng, LPD, etc). It is very complex
> compared with older systems like LPRng and is able to process documents
> before they are printed in a very nice way. Some KDE printing features (in
> the printing dialog) work only with CUPS.
> I hope you get the idea. Otherwise just ask again. ;-)
