OpenPrinting printer support - filters

Foomatic is a printer database designed to make it easier to set up common printers for use with UNIX-like operating systems. It provides the "glue" between a print spooler (like CUPS or lpr) and the printer driver, by processing files sent to the printer.

This package consists of filters used by the printer spoolers to convert the incoming PostScript data into the printer's native format using a printer-specific, but spooler-independent PPD file.

For use with CUPS, you will need both the cups and cups-client packages installed on your system.
