X Printing Panel
The X Printing Panel (XPP) is a tool for choosing a desired printer and for setting its options through an easy-to-use GUI. You simply call XPP instead of lpr or lp at the command line or from applications. XPP supports the standard options of CUPS but also some undocumented job control options as job scheduling or page labels. It also makes all options defined in the printer's PPD file available to the user, so that he can use of all features specific to his printer model. It also supports the numerical and string options of Foomatic (2.x and 3.x) and the fax number option of fax4CUPS. Users can save settings and different sets of settings for different printing tasks.
