|FreeBSD Handbook on Printing||http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/printing.html|
In order to use printers with FreeBSD, you will need
to set them up to work with the Berkeley line printer spooling system,
also known as the LPD spooling system.
It is the standard printer control system in FreeBSD.
This chapter introduces the LPD spooling system,
often simply called LPD, and will guide you through its configuration.
|Linux Printing Usage HOWTO||http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Printing-Usage-HOWTO.html|
This document describes how to use the line printer spooling system
provided with the Linux operating system.
This HOWTO is the supplementary document to the Linux Printing
Setup HOWTO, which discusses the installation and setup of the
Linux printing system.
The material presented in this HOWTO should be equally relevent
for all flavors of the BSD operating system in addition to the
Linux operating system.
The LPRng software is an enhanced, extended, and portable
implementation of the Berkeley LPR print spooler functionality.
While providing the same interface and meeting RFC1179 requirements,
the implementation is completely new and provides support for the
following features: lightweight (no databases needed) lpr, lpc, and
lprm programs; dynamic redirection of print queues; automatic job
holding; highly verbose diagnostics; multiple printers serving a
single queue; client programs do not need to run SUID root;
greatly enhanced security checks; and a greatly improved permission
and authorization mechanism.
Ghostscript is the name of a set of software that provides:
An interpreter for the PostScript (TM) language, with the
ability to convert PostScript language files to many raster formats,
view them on displays, and print them on printers that don't have
PostScript language capability built in;
An interpreter for Portable Document Format (PDF) files,
with the same abilities;
The ability to convert PostScript language files to PDF
(with some limitations) and vice versa; and
A set of C procedures (the Ghostscript library) that implement
the graphics capabilities that appear as primitive operations in
the PostScript language.
Samba is an open source software suite that provides seamless file
and print services to SMB/CIFS clients.
|FreeBSD compared to Linux||http://sites.inka.de/mips/unix/bsdlinux.html|
In recent years the enormous public success of the Linux movement
has overshadowed the availability of other equally powerful and
freely available Unix operating systems.
This paper aims to introduce BSD as an alternative to Linux,
to provide basic information, and to clear commonly encountered
|Unified BSD package Collection||http://www.openpackages.org/|
FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD each have a similar system with most of
the same software applications present. Each group has made many
enhancements to the system to meet their needs and improve the product.
FreeBSD has roughly 3700 software applications in its "ports"
collection. OpenBSD has around 900.
