       kprinter - a printer tool for KDE


       kprinter [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [options] file(s)


       KPrinter  opens automatically when you click on the "Print" icon of any
       KDE application. Choose your print job settings by  going  through  the
       dialog and then click on the "Print" button.

       kprinter is a very versatile tool. Depending on the actual features and
       power of the print subsystem of your computer, kprinter translates  the
       former’s  abilities  into  a  nice  and easy-to-understand GUI. If your
       print subsystem does not support duplexing, kprinter will not show  the
       option. If your print subsystem is CUPS, kprinter is at its peak shape.

       With KPrinter you can...

            - switch "on the fly" the print subsystem-to-use,

            - start the Add Printer Wizard,

            - choose the target printer,

            - possibly select one or more files to print,

            - drag’n’drop files for print,

            - check for or set the print options,

            - schedule the job for later printing,

            - tag the  print  job  with  accounting  information  for  billing

            - set  the  job  priority for a higher or lower level to influence
              the order of the job queue,

            - access the KDEPrint configurator,

            - and activate (or disable) a viewing filter  that  shows  all  or
              just the selected few printers relevant to the user.
