having just discovered both cups and pdq i would recommend one of them.
pdq (and the x client xpdq) is a very very simple print system. it
requires no printcap, no queues and xpdq has a a wizard to help you setup
new printers. there are of course debian packages :)
cups is nicer but considerably more complicated (though you still don't
have to deal with /etc/printcap). with cups you get qtcups (a slick qt
window which you use as the print command which pops up a window like the
windows print properties box). you can also get kups which is a kde gui to
add/remove/configure printers and the queue (you don't have to be running
kde to use it). there are debian packgaes for all this as well.
