I have a minimal linux system and I would like to print. It seems the usual approach is to install cups.
But what I think is very annoying is that cups comes with its own webserver to do the configuration. Nevertheless it seems cups is the best working solution for printing.
Is there a lightweight version of cups, which just takes plain configuration files and provides the usual lp* stuff.
Is it possible to compile cups so it does not include a webserver.
Why do they think it is a good idea to install a webserver to configure a printserver?
