Description Gerd v. Egidy 2002-01-05 12:13:51 EST
CUPS has a lot of new features compared to LPRng (especially as a print 
It now has tight integration into samba and KDE -> e.g. KDE finds all 
CUPS-printers on my LAN automatically and installing them is just a click.
But currently I have to recompile kdelibs, kdebase and samba to get full 
support for cups.

LPRng also had a lot of major security issues in the past and I expect 
more to come. CUPS instead had just one I remember...

So please include CUPS in your default installation and compile KDE and 
samba with cups support.

Thank you.

Longer term, perhaps, yes.
Comment 2 Gerd v. Egidy 2002-01-10 14:28:54 EST
Does this mean it is scheduled for next release or not?
All the other major distros have it as default printing framework for a while 
now (SuSE since 7.2, Mandrake since I think 7.1)...

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-01-10 16:34:33 EST
Not.  Longer term than that, I think.
Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2002-01-27 11:32:59 EST
I guess there is nothing wrong with compiling kde/samba with cups
support. Gerd, you might want to file a RFE under kdelibs/samba.

I think that if you watch rawhide in the next few days you might see something
