"It may seem a little daunting at first but I can say that the
process went smoothly and once I ironed out one small problem with
printing, everything seems to work very well. Of course, what good
are all of these tools if I don't have applications that I can
print from? Well, we'll be taking a look at using CUPS+Gimp-Print
with the BJC6000 under Kword and Kspread, both which are part of

LaTex and, hence TeX itself. We'll also take a brief look at using

from it. We'll try and conclude whether or not tools like the ones
mentioned in this introduction are good enough for someone to
typeset general documents such as letters, resumes and the like
without having to know anything about Linux in particular, no
mark-up languages or anything. I'll try and comment on the quality
of the output from the printer, as best I can.
"In addition, we'll examine CUPS post-installation to see what
type of user-interface is provided and what type of
documentation/help is provided. The reason I want to do this is
