No spooler printing?

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have acquired an Epson XP-200 printer/scanner and have 2 questions thereto related. 1) I see from the Epson web site it has support for CUPS, LPD, LPRng, PPR, PDO, and no spooler. PPR & PDO are of no interest to me. CUPS apparently intercedes so that either LPD or LPRng can be used, I think. How do I install my printer/scanner so that there is "no spooler". Here I presume that to mean that CUPS is not used and that somehow the file specified by Slackware's native LPRng simply prints the file directly. Is that correct and if not please explain "no spooler". Also, w (HowTos)
