  • DirectPrintingOnLinux - direct to printer printing under Linux - recommend for those having issues with any CUPS printers
  • CupsOnLinux - Configuring Printing
    • The really easy way to get all of the CS printers setup on your Linux system.
      • Warning - although easy to setup you will not be able to cancel jobs out get detailed notifications when errors occure
    • Notes: If your machine has been provided by CS these steps will have been done for you already.
      • However if not setup by CS; it will also show you how to add all of the CS printers (just 5 lines added to the cups config file!)
