IOS printing via CUPS
Authored by: BMarsh on Dec 22, '10 10:42:37AM

just adding the note that AirPrint Activator only modifies one thing in CUPS to enable Airprinting

"It will only inject a single line in a CUPS configuration when you select to “activate” AirPrint."

it is "donationware".

Makes it a little nicer/easier than everything involved in this hint. Although this hint may allow more features/options.

It appears that AirPrint Activator only needs to add a single line to one file.

Add image/urf urf string(0,UNIRAST) to /usr/share/cups/mime/apple.types and you should be able to remove, add, and share the printers you want to show up in AirPrint.

I haven't tested this yet, but I intend to.

Better instructions

I've tested this now and it worked. No reboot required, just remove, add, share, done.

Apparently the following is now being added by AirPrintActivator:

image/urf urf string(0,UNIRAST<00>)

In OS X 10.9, I have the following line in the file by default (I didn't add it):

image/urf urf string(0,UNIRAST)

But I can't seem to see printers on iOS...
