Cups works great when you have a postscript printer ... otherwise you
are using some driver that cups calls via a special type of ppd file
which could range from "works ok" to "kludgy hack". For
non-postscript HP printers lprng with if-hp drivers work well. I've
never had much luck getting modern ink jets working with cups (unless
they are postscript, which a few are).
Buy a postscript module for your printer, though, and your unix
printing problems are over.
