This is a retrograde development. A principal advantage of Linux has
always been that you had a wide choice, but this restricts choice. It
seems that I must either use CUPS, which I don't want to do, or print to
file and then print that.
I guess I don't understand the reluctance to use CUPS. Once I switched
to it a few years ago, many printing issues I had were solved.
Granted, it's another daemon running, but, IMO, worth it.

CUPS is complicated bloatware that a user of a directly-connected
printer *shouldn't* need.
