Introduction to CUPS

The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) is a print spooler and associated utilities. It is based on the "Internet Printing Protocol" and provides printing services to most PostScript and raster printers.

Note

If you get "Unsuported format, application/postscript" errors, try installing Cups/Ghostscript/foomatic (if needed), then start cups.

Configuration Information

Note

CUPS does not use DESTDIR, CUPS uses BUILDROOT instead. Use BUILDROOT as you would normally use DESTDIR.

Creating the lp User

useradd -c "Print Service User" -d /dev/null -g lp -s /bin/false -u 10 lp

Non-Multilib

If you utilize Linux-PAM, you need to modify some files so CUPS can find needed headers. Make the appropriate modifications using the following command:

sed -i -e "s@pam/pam@security/pam@g" \
{config-scripts/cups-pam.m4,scheduler/auth.c,configure}

Compile the package:

./configure &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
rm -rfv /etc/rc.d/*/*cups

CUPS' man pages are compressed. If you want to uncompress them, use the following commands:

gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man1/{cancel,cups{-config,test{dsc,ppd}},lp{,options,passwd,q,rm,r,stat}}.1.gz
gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man5/{{classes,client,cups-snmp,cupsd,printers,subscriptions,mailto}.conf,mime.{convs,types}}.5.gz
gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man7/{backend,filter}.7
gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man8/{accept,cups{d,addsmb,enable,-{deviced,driverd,lpd,polld,}},lp{admin,info,move,c}}.8.gz
rm -v /usr/share/man/man8/{reject,cupsdisable}.8.gz
ln -sv accept.8 /usr/share/man/man8/reject.8
ln -sv cupsenable.8 /usr/share/man/man8/cupsdisable.8

If wanting to print to a Windows printer, pass this line to add smb support

ln -s `which smbspool` /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb

Multilib

32Bit

If you utilize Linux-PAM, you need to modify some files so CUPS can find needed headers. Make the appropriate modifications using the following command:

sed -i -e "s@pam/pam@security/pam@g" \
{config-scripts/cups-pam.m4,scheduler/auth.c,configure}

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" CXX="g++ ${BUILD32}" USE_ARCH=32 ./configure \
    --libdir=/usr/lib &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
rm -rfv /etc/rc.d/*/*cups &&
mv -v /usr/bin/cups-config{,-32}

If wanting to print to a Windows printer, pass this line to add smb support (Untested)

ln -s `which smbspool` /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb

N32

If you utilize Linux-PAM, you need to modify some files so CUPS can find needed headers. Make the appropriate modifications using the following command:

sed -i -e "s@pam/pam@security/pam@g" \
{config-scripts/cups-pam.m4,scheduler/auth.c,configure}

Compile the package:

sed -i '/CUPS_SERVERBIN/s:/lib:&32:' configure &&
CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" CXX="g++ ${BUILDN32}" USE_ARCH=n32 ./configure \
    --libdir=/usr/lib32 &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
rm -rfv /etc/rc.d/*/*cups &&
mv -v /usr/bin/cups-config{,-n32}

If wanting to print to a Windows printer, pass this line to add smb support (Untested)

ln -s `which smbspool` /usr/lib32/cups/backend/smb

64Bit

If you utilize Linux-PAM, you need to modify some files so CUPS can find needed headers. Make the appropriate modifications using the following command:

sed -i -e "s@pam/pam@security/pam@g" \
{config-scripts/cups-pam.m4,scheduler/auth.c,configure}

Compile the package:

sed -i '/CUPS_SERVERBIN/s:/lib:&64:' configure &&
CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" CXX="g++ ${BUILD64}" USE_ARCH=64 ./configure \
    --libdir=/usr/lib64 &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
rm -rfv /etc/rc.d/*/*cups &&
mv -v /usr/bin/cups-config{,-64} &&
ln -sfv multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/cups-config

CUPS' man pages are compressed. If you want to uncompress them, use the following commands:

gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man1/{cancel,cups{-config,test{dsc,ppd}},lp{,options,passwd,q,rm,r,stat}}.1.gz
gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man5/{{classes,client,cups-snmp,cupsd,printers,subscriptions,mailto}.conf,mime.{convs,types}}.5.gz
gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man7/{backend,filter}.7
gunzip -v /usr/share/man/man8/{accept,cups{d,addsmb,enable,-{deviced,driverd,lpd,polld,}},lp{admin,info,move,c}}.8.gz
 rm -v /usr/share/man/man8/{reject,cupsdisable}.8.gz
 ln -sv accept.8 /usr/share/man/man8/reject.8
 ln -sv cupsenable.8 /usr/share/man/man8/cupsdisable.8

If wanting to print to a Windows printer, pass this line to add smb support (Untested)

ln -s `which smbspool` /usr/lib64/cups/backend/smb
