About the CUPS Print Manager GUI

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.
