"CUPS's basic install does not include a graphical client.
It includes only command-line utilities and a Web-based interface,
which works well and has many capabilities. However, you might
sometimes prefer to use a native KDE interface. (If you prefer
GNOME, please see Resources for some GNOME interfaces.)"
"Since my last column, I have given up on Red Hat 6.2 and moved
to Mandrake 7.2. I use Mandrake at home, but I had standardized the
office on Red Hat. After running Mandrake 7.2 for about a month, my
office setup is about to change. One reason I prefer Mandrake 7.2
is that it comes with CUPS; this has saved folks a lot of time when
"Mandrake installs two packages with the basic CUPS
distributions: qtcups and kups. qtcups is required for kups to
work. If you don't run KDE, you can use qtcups without kups to
graphically configure CUPS. I will not describe qtcups in much
detail here, but will instead focus on kups."
