2. Installing the CUPS Print Server

To install CUPS using a precompiled binary, issue the following command from a root terminal:

# pkg install cups

Other optional, but recommended, packages are print/gutenprint and print/hplip, both of which add drivers and utilities for a variety of printers. Once installed, the CUPS configuration files can be found in the directory /usr/local/etc/cups.
