HOWTO Install a CUPS server on Debian Woody

This article was first written in September 2004 for the BeezNest technical
website (http://glasnost.beeznest.org/articles/170).

To install a CUPS server on Debian Woody, just:

$ sudo apt-get install cupsys

If you want to connect HP printers, also install package hp-ppd, it contains a lot of printer definitions (PPD – Postscript Printer Definition) for HP printers.

Then connect to the machine on port 631 (Ex: http://localhost:631) using your favorite web browser and add your printer(s).
