I was contacted recently by a friend who was studying printing under
FreeBSD <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/printing.html>. He
presently runs a mixture of Windows and Ubuntu PCs.
The documentation deals primarily with "parallel" and "serial"
printers. Personally, I cannot remember the last time I used either;
however, that is not pertinent. My friend accesses the printer(s) the
same way I do, via a wireless network. The difference is that I am
using CUPS to achieve that goal. My friend would like to do it sans
CUPS if possible.
I know it is possible; however, I cannot find any actual documentation
under the "printing" section in the FreeBSD manual. If anyone could
provide a link to such documentation, it would be appreciated. Updating
the "Printing" section in the manual would also seem like a worthwhile
endeavor also. I did a quick perusal of the section and even USB is
