Chapter 16: Setting Up Printers and Printing

In This Chapter

  • Understanding printing in Linux
  • Setting up printers
  • Using printing commands
  • Managing document printing
  • Sharing printers

Very few people need to print all the time, but when they do want to print something, they usually need it quickly. Setting up a print server and sharing printers can save you money by eliminating the need for a printer at every workstation. Some of those savings can be used to buy printers that can output more pages per minute or provide higher-quality output.

You can attach printers to your Fedora system to make them available to users of that system or to other computers on the network. You can configure your Fedora printer as a remote CUPS printer or Samba printer (emulating a Windows print server).
