    By following the instructions in, I installed print/cups and started the cupsd daemon. However, I noticed that the cupsd process runs as root. Does CUPS really need superuser privileges to print documents? If not, how do I make cupsd run as a less...

    Hi all, Was not able to find it in the discussions. I am planning to find a laser-printer so I can ditch those inkjets I have. I only print some 10 pages a year or so. Are there any printers with good support for FreeBSD?

    Printing without using CUPS and while using hplip

    I have a LaserJet 200 series HP printer. I print through cups and hplip now, but I noticed my printer has an embedded webserver. It got me thinking... Is there a way to disable the cups daemon, and add the printer directly through the wireless network (or USB) and print that way?

    Solved lpd - lpstat 'The printer is unreachable at this time.'

    Cause: CUPS was configured to use IPv4 addresses. LPD was configured to use domain names. A change to the printer addresses and to DNS allowed LPD to work and broke CUPS. Solution: Reconfigure printers in CUPS to use IPP to printer domain names. OP: I am seeing this in lpstat -p -d -R: #...

    I know there are proprietary Linux drivers and software for the HP Envy Pro 6000 multifunctional prnter and scanner. I did not have any luck in macking the drivers working for Linux, and I was thinking if anyone has successfully used such a printer with FreeBSD.
