    Question print from shell server/

    Hi all,
    I have a shell server running and i would like to send print jobs to a network printer. Should I install cups? or is there something else?
    Also, how would I print from the command line?

    Also,
    CUPS is probably the easiest option. Something else would be gnuspool (or LPRng on Lucid).
