Like most Linuxes (and also Macintosh OS X), Ubuntu relies upon the CUPS software for its printing subsystem. In addition to Ubuntu's configuration software on the System ^ Administration menu, CUPS can be configured using your web browser. Just type localhost:631 into the Firefox address bar to access the CUPS control panel. You can administer any printers setup on the system by clicking the Printers tab in the web page that appears, and look at the list of print jobs currently pending by clicking the Jobs tab. Remember that you might need to refresh the page to see when jobs join/leave the print queue.
To learn how to administer your entire system from a web browser (from any computer), see Tip 143, on page 184.
