From a console or terminal you can see the answer to your question by doing apt-cache show cups-pdf.

I can open the file with gedit and print to PDF with no problem.

What do I not understand about line commands?

That cups-pdf does not print to a printer, it creates a PDF file of
the file you sent to cups-pdf and puts it into the /PDF folder in your
/home/.  You can print it from there with many apps.
