CUPS 1.4 is fully compatible with CUPS-1.1 machines in the network and with software built against CUPS-1.1 libraries. The Common Unix Printing System provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(TM) operating systems. This package contains the backend filter for printers on the serial ports. The auto-detection on the serial ports takes several seconds (and so the startup time of the CUPS daemon with this backend present) and therefore it is not recommended to install this package when one has no serial port printer.
