CUPS printer drivers and backends are deprecated
Extract from lpadmin man
CUPS printer drivers and backends are deprecated and will no longer be supported in a future feature release of CUPS. Printers that do not support IPP can be supported using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).
It might be needed to update the wiki accordingly. shirenn (talk) 08:57, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
- It might also be worth mentioning IPP-over-USB which allows for IPP to be used over USB (thus alleviating the need for printer drivers for printers that support this). The Debian Wiki has a pretty good article that covers IPP-over-USB. -- Flyingpig (talk) 09:05, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
