Discussion OpenPrinting

Till Kamppeter


The New Architecture requires changes in the GUIs, in printer setup tools and print dialogs, as we do not deal with CUPS queues any more but with IPP print destinations. So the GUIs have to list these destinations and talk IPP to obtain all the details.

Sandboxed packaging and immutable OS distributions force us into the realm of the New Architecture already before the release of CUPS 3.x which makes this topic really urgent.

After an introduction about the state of the art and a presentation about the situation of Ubuntu with the CUPS Snap (Ubuntu 23.10 + flavors, Ubuntu Core Desktop) we will discuss the challenges and the solutions.
