I have a computer with:
toor at freebsd:/root # freebsd-version
toor at freebsd:/root # uname -a
FreeBSD freebsd 11.0-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p1 #0 r306420: Thu
Sep 29 03:40:55 UTC 2016
root at releng2.nyi.freebsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
toor at freebsd:/root # pkg info xfce | head -n 1
I wanted to print a document today. I went looking for:
Application Menu -> Settings -> Printing
It does not exist. All I see is:
Application Menu -> Settings -> Xfce 4 Printing System Settings
CUPS is missing from the left-hand pane.
When I try to print from within LibreOffice Writer, the choices
available in the Print dialog are not encouraging:
Print to File...
So, I installed:
This port is deprecated; you may wish to reconsider installing it:
Depends on unmaintained x11-toolkits/libxfce4gui.
Application Menu -> Settings -> Printing still does not exist, and the
LibreOffice Writer Print dialog still does not look encouraging.
Any suggestions for getting CUPS working?
