For the commands that I know, System V BSD -------- --- lp lpr lpstat lpq cancel lprm There may be others, but those are the only ones I use. If you install lprng, it will replace lpr. If you install cupsys-client, you will want to install cupsys, and will have no need for lpr. I would suggest using cupsys (+ cupsys-client + cupsys-bsd) as it has a nice friendly web interface (point your browser to http://localhost:631/ after installing it). -- Hubert Chan <email@example.com> - http://www.uhoreg.ca/ PGP/GnuPG key: 1024D/124B61FA Fingerprint: 96C5 012F 5F74 A5F7 1FF7 5291 AF29 C719 124B 61FA Key available at wwwkeys.pgp.net.
