CUPS support includes a GUI, system-config-printer, which is accessible from the command line or from the desktop. Because CUPS is the default print service, detection of directly-attached printers is automatic. CUPS can also automatically discover other CUPS printers on a network, if those printers have sharing enabled. CUPS can also be configured to browse the network for Windows-hosted printers. For more information, see Local Server Configuration.
Note that when using CUPS Print Manager to perform a privileged action, such as creating a new print queue, modifying print queue properties, or deleting an existing print queue, you are prompted for the root password.
To start the CUPS Print Manager GUI, use any one of the following methods:
From the command line, type the following command:
