AW: LPRng vs. CUPS?

I use CUPS since ~1 month and I'm very pleased with his results. If you
download gimp-print and compile/install it with './configure --with-cups &&
make && make install', you will have a whole bundle of new printer-drivers
relaunching CUPS, including most of the commercial printers which are
available on the market.

Concerning the stability, i can aggree with you; sometimes I have the dim
feeling that the web-interface doesn't know what the command-tool knows;
reciprocally its the same. There is a lot elbowroom for further patches, i
think :-).
