Chapter 12. Printing with Fedora


From the word go, Fedora provides support for a huge range of printers from many different manufacturers. In this chapter we will look at how to get your printer connected and talking to Fedora, as well as at the software that Fedora uses to manage printers and print jobs.

In keeping with most of the other Linux distributions, Fedora uses CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) to handle printers. Other systems are supported, such as LPRng, but you will not have access to some of the graphical management tools from within Fedora.
