Foomatic GUI

Not Rated
Foomatic is a printing system designed to make it easier to set up common printers for use with Debian (and other operating systems). It provides the 'glue' between a print spooler (like CUPS or lpr) and the printer, by providing information about how to process files sent to the printer.

This package includes a GNOME-based graphical user interface to simplify configuring printers that use Foomatic.

netcat, pconf-detect, nmap, and smbclient are recommended if you need to also manage remote printers.
