linux default iconlpr-bash Publisher's description

lpr-bash is a replacement for the "lpr" command found in lpr(ng), CUPS, and other Unix printing systems.

lpr-bash is a replacement for the "lpr" command found in lpr(ng), CUPS, and other Unix printing systems. lpr-bash is implemented as a shell script.

Originally designed to run on LinuxFromScratch, and later ported to gentoo, it should work with virtually any flavor of Linux or Unix, and maybe even Mac OS X.

The most common Linux Printing Systems consists of a daemon that needs to run in the background, in most cases listening on a port (ipp://, TCP port 631) for data, in the case of CUPS even as a webserver.

The advantage of this overdone functionality is that you can print from another PC in the network using the IPP protocol, while lpr-bash needs to resort to the print server functionality of samba for network printing.

If you only want local printing or have samba already started, lpr-bash is the smaller, less complex Printing System for you.

What's New in This Release:

??? Two nasty bugs were fixed in local printing, ebuild, printcap-convert, and unwanted output to stdout.
??? The print group was changed to lp for gentoo conformity. (un)lockprinter commands were added.
??? The install script was changed to use portage on gentoo systems.
??? A Web page was added to the st
