Chapter 2

Planning for Printing (Tasks)

This chapter provides information that can help you plan for printer setup when using LP print commands or Oracle Solaris Print Manager.

Note - Starting with the Oracle Solaris 11 Express release, CUPS is the default print service. Certain implementations in this release enable you to switch between the CUPS print service and the LP print service. To use the Oracle Solaris Print Manager or LP print commands, you must first install any required software packages, then switch the active print service from CUPS to the LP print service. For detailed information, see Switching From CUPS to the LP Print Service. For more information about using CUPS, see Chapter 3, Setting Up and Administering Printers by Using CUPS (Tasks).
