Reminders to Self

Reminder to self.

Download the cups-pdf package:
sudo apt-get install cups-pdf
(or via Synaptic)

sudo chmod +s /usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-pdf

"In order to ensure CUPS-PDF is running with the required root privileges you have to make ‘root’ the owner of the cups-pdf backend and set the file permissions of the backend to 0700 (root only)."

In Gnome:
System > Administration > Printing
New Printer
Local Printer & Use A Detected Printer click on PDF Printer
Choose “Generic” as the manufacturer
Choose “postscript color printer rev3b”
Leave the driver set to “Standard (suggested)”

Printed documents are stored at ~/PDF

md5sum filename

Then compare resulting checksum with the one provided in the ".MD5" file. If they match, then the file has most probably been downloaded correctly with no errors.
