9.5 Graphical Printing Interfaces

Tools such as xpp and the KDE program KPrinter provide a graphical interface for choosing queues and setting both CUPS standard options and printer-specific options made available through the PPD file. You can even use KPrinter as the standard printing interface of non-KDE applications. In the print dialog of these applications, specify either kprinter or kprinter --stdin as the print command. The command to use depends on how the application transmits the data—just try which one works. If set up correctly, the application should open the KPrinter dialog whenever a print job is issued from it, so you can use the dialog to select a queue and set other printing options. This requires that the application's own print setup does not conflict with that of KPrinter and that printing options are only changed through KPrinter after it has been enabled. More information on KPrinter is available in Section 6.0, Managing Print Jobs, (↑ KDE User Guide ).
