Is there a way to install a printer using cups without

I want to access remote printers alos on a cups server in
the dept but have no interest in installing X-windows.

Are you using KDE? If so, I believe you can use the KDE Control Center (under Peripheral Devices > Printers). You should also be able to edit the files in /etc/cups/ directly to add a printer. I rarely use a browser for it now, I most often use KDE (on Xandros). I have one laptop running Debian Sarge and I am almost sure that KDE has a wizard for adding printers (in the Control Center of KDE).

The Add Printer option in the KDE Control Center activates a printer wizard. I found it more intuitively easy to use than the http://localhost:631/ option in the browser. Now I haven't used it to install a remote printer. The Debian KDE list might also have some good suggestions for you.
