You'll need the cups and cup-pdf ports/packages, then add cupsd_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf and then /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cupsd restart and then point a browser at http://localhost:631 and go through the "add a printer" steps (when it asks device choose the pdf entry and when it asks for a make I choose 'raw'. Seems to work. I *think* that the username you give to the web interface whilst adding the printer has to be in the 'wheel' group. g. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
