If you have CUPS set up already on a server, and you generally have
the same environment on your desktop machines, when setting up a new
host, simply install the packages listed above. Then copy over the
appropriate configuration files:
# cd /etc/cups
# scp athens:/etc/cups/printers.conf .
# scp 'athens:/etc/cups/ppd/*' ppd
# chmod o+r ppd/*.ppd
Always keep your configuration up to date on the server, perhaps using
the web interface via https://athens:631/. (If you use instead the
command line interface with the command lpadmin then you
also need to copy lpoptions across.) A convenient way to keep the
configurations consistent is with rdist
Section 73.1.1 for an example).
