What is PrinterSetup for Mac

PrinterSetup is a flexible, open-source printer setup system. Released for the benefit of system administrators and Unix savvy users using CUPS, on OS X. Licensed under the GNU GPL v3.

An addition to Bonjour print queue management. Use a combination of location, user, time to control printer queues. There is limited documentation available. Software is in the prototyping phase. Input is welcome. You can access additional information about PrinterSetup from the presentation available now at the official website.

PrinterSetup features scripts which:

  • Cancel all jobs on all print queues.
  • Start all print queues.

Screencasts are now available from the PrinterSetup site. It is hoped the system will develop and become cross platform print queue setup tool. PrinterSetup is part of PrintingWorks: the open-source print-accounting system.

The developer's web site has a more concise description of this tool, for those who might still be confused: "PrinterSetup is an enterprise CUPS print queue deployment tool. PrinterSetup is cable of generating Apple packages for CUPS print queue deployment via Apple Remote Desktop (ARD)." If you don't understand what that means, then this is not for you. :-)

A folder hierarchy does not make a suitable user interface. Hand edited configuration files suck hard too. This app will be about recreating printer configurations on multiple machines? How about have the admin setup the printers in Print Centre, then have your app extract that setup into a document.

Hi, I am the developers friend and I have worked at the site where he has used this tool. I think that this tool along with Pykota can help set up and maintain the printing facilities of an organization - in this case we used it at a school. I would recommend trying out this fusion of systems if you are interested to simplify the deployment of print servers in a multi-user network.
