CUPS-PDF - A free virtual PDF printer
Authored by: Helge33 on Aug 30, '07 04:35:47AM

I am not surprised. I never understood the purpose of amateur software like CUPS which apparently is only useful for exotic or outdated printer models?

I neither understand why on a Mac(!) the 1560. PDF Utility shall be a 10 point pick of the week?

I neither understand why this part of the osxhint webpage is barely readable with Safari as there are no line breaks...??

CUPS-PDF - A free virtual PDF printer
Authored by: goetzibubu on Jan 21, '12 01:07:33AM

Some special applications need special tools...
E.g. the virtual machine of Parallels Desktop. I do not want to miss or I cannot miss some WIN programs. So I use the virtual machine of Parallels.
To avoid printing output on paper I tested some other PDF tools as FreePDF and DoPDF-7. But I was not able to change these printers to standard printers. I have to use a virtual PDF printer and set to standard on the Mac side. So I was happy to find a driver as CUPS-PDF.
