Printer Commands (linux; kprinter)

linux understands both the Berkely lpr and the System V (lp) set of printer commands. Most distributions include a graphical-based utility allowing people more flexibility in their printing.
kprinter
allows people to select which printer to use, and which properties to enable, all with the click of a mouse. It is part of the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) package, which also understands the lpr and lp commands.

The SuSE 9.1 version of the kprinter interface looks like that in figure 6.1.
