Printing Service

Submitted by Robert Szeleney on Thu, 2006-09-21 14:06.

The Printing Service, based on CUPS, has been implemented.

With the Printer Configuration (System Manager Plugin) it is now very easy to add and manage your printers,
be it locally connected (USB) or network (Windows, Linux, Samba, IPP) printers.

The entire printing system is implemented as a service (like most other SkyOS Subsystems), which can easily be enabled/disabled on demand.

With roughly 1000 supported printers the next SkyOS build will enable you to print your favorite documents in various formats, including:
Postscript, DVI, GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF and many more.


And here it is, the first ever printed document from SkyOS:
