System Administration Guide: Printing

Raster Image Processor Support

The raster image support in the Oracle Solaris OS (RIP) enables you to print to printers that do not have resident PostScript processing capabilities. Theprinting software provides the print server RIP and supporting technologies. The RIP occurs behind the scenes. However, to use the appropriate driver you need to configure each printer by using either Solaris Print Manager or the lpadmin -n command. For step-by-step instructions on using the lpadmin -n command, see How to Add a New Directly Attached Printer by Using LP Print Commands.
