Description

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Edu to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Edu mailing list

The Common UNIX Printing System (or CUPS(tm)) is a printing system and general replacement for lpd and the like. It supports the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), and has its own filtering driver model for handling various document types.

This package provides the parts of CUPS which are needed for using printer drivers.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: cups-browsed ippusbxd

The Common UNIX Printing System (or CUPS(tm)) is a printing system and general replacement for lpr, lpd and the like. It supports the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), and has its own filtering driver model for handling various document types.

This package provides the BSD commands for interacting with CUPS. It is provided separately to allow CUPS to coexist with other printing systems (to a small degree).

Foomatic is a printing system designed to make it easier to set up common printers for use with Debian (and other operating systems). It provides the "glue" between a print spooler (like CUPS or lpr) and your actual printer, by telling your computer how to process files sent to the printer.

This package contains all PPD files which can be generated from the Foomatic database as one small compressed archive. This reduces the disk space consumption compared to the Foomatic XML database vastly and in addition makes listing of all available PPDs and extracting the needed PPD much faster than using the Foomatic XML database.

Because PostScript is just a page description language, there is a need to provide a mechanism for a print spooler to customize the PostScript Job to the actual printer device.

A PPD (PostScript Printer Definitions) specify the device specific PostScript commands needed to utilize printer features (such as printing quality, paper tray, duplex printing).

This package contains some PPDs for HP printers that are not in package linuxprinting.org-ppds

This package contains PPD (printer definition) files for the printers supported through the HP Linux Printing and Imaging System HPIJS driver.

These PPDs should work well with the matching versions of HPLIP and HPIJS, but may not be the most up-to-date PPDs available for a given printer. See http://www.openprinting.org/ for the latest version of the PPDs (which are not guaranteed to work well).

The HP Linux Printing and Imaging System provides full support for printing on most HP SFP (single function peripheral) inkjets and many LaserJets, and for scanning, sending faxes and for photo-card access on most HP MFP (multi-function peripheral) printers.

This package contains utilities with graphical user interface (GUI) for HPLIP: HP Toolbox, HP Fax, ...

Note that all GUI utilities are based on the Qt GUI environment. There are currently no equivalent utilities based on GTK+.
