Did you mean a printer's driver?

A good start to understand FreeBSD is to read it's oficial
Handbook. Your question has nothing to do with linux_base. And
questions like "What is the ports system? How to get a FreeBSD ports
tree? How to install an application from ports or via packages?" are
described at "The Handbook". Ex.:

Which supfile did you use? If you used the one for ports (not for the
system files) you should get /usr/ports tree.

Please read the above mentioned document. After reading you will
understand that there are options (i.e. installing via port or
packages) and how to do them. If you have a more concrete question
(with logs, error messages etc.) you are welcome back and we'll be
glad to help you.

BTW good docs have been always an advantage of *BSD...
