9. Vendor Solutions

This section is, by definition, incomplete. Feel free to send in details of your favourite distribution.

9.1 Red Hat

Red Hat has a GUI printer administration tool which can add remote printers and printers on local devices. It lets you choose a ghostscript-supported printer type and Unix device file to print to, then installs a print queue in /etc/printcap and writes a short PostScript-and-ascii magic filter based around gs and nenscript. This solution works fairly well, and is trivial to setup for common cases.

9.2 Other Distributions

Please send me info on what other distributions do!
