To transition your current printing environment to work with CUPS, you must reconfigure your existing printers.
$ svcs -a | grep cups/scheduler online 18:18:55 svc:/application/cups/scheduler:default $ svcs -a | grep cups/in-lpd online Sep_29 svc:/application/cups/in-lpd:default
# svcadm enable cups/scheduler # svcadm enable cups/in-lpd
$ pkg info print/cups/system-config-printer
Printers can be configured by using either the lpadmin command, or by using the CUPS web browser interface at http://localhost:631, or by using CUPS Print Manager, which is accessible in the desktop.
$ pkg install print/cups/system-config-printer
Additional CUPS documentation can be found at:
You can now configure printers by using CUPS. You can set a default printer by specifying either the LPDEST or PRINTER environment variables, or by using the lpoptions command. For instructions, see How to Set a Default Printer at the Command Line and Example 2–6.
