CUPS-PDF - A free virtual PDF printer
Authored by: mizraith on Aug 29, '07 05:33:50PM

I have actually gotten it to work -- and the hint a while back was more specific than this repost. Anyway, in the end it seemed kinda pointless given OS X's native print to PDF capabilities. Adding additional Automator workflows helps the print-to-pdf functionality as well.

The only use I found for the CUPS-PDF was to *share* the ability to print to PDF to those less fortunate Windows users. While this worked for most general purpose documents, it seemed to fall down pretty hard on (you guessed it) various PowerPoint type files (images, specifically).
