Setting up printing
I've never configured a printer under Linux. I've got an Epson Sylus
Color 740i hooked up via USB, and I've got it to the point where I can
cat files directly to the device and see them printed.
I'm a bit baffled by the number of choices of packages which are
available, as well as the number of printing systems to choose from,
from cups to lpr to half a dozen other choices.
1. Do all of these printing systems need to be configured for printing
to work in most apps, or are they complementary?
2. Is there a standard "Debian way" for configuring printing? I
fetched task-printing which brought in a selection of utilities,
but I don't believe any of them perform any of the configuration
for me. Certainly, none prompted for the type of printer I'm using.
