Re: [opensuse] Post installation queries (FIRST successful installation of Linux)

Hello,

No.
CUPS neither provides printer drivers nor does CUPS provide
software for the low-level communication with a printer device.

The former is provided by Ghostscript usually together
with printer driver software packages, see
http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts_printing
the latter is provided basically by the kernel and other
low-level software, see
http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Installing_a_Printer


Kind Regards
