Print Center

OS X (as of this writing) does not support Mac OS–style desktop printers. Additionally, the familiar Chooser is not a part of OS X. Instead, the heart of the OS X GUI environment printing system is the Print Center. The Print Center is the utility used for adding and deleting printers, setting the default printer, and interacting with the queues. The Print Center combines the printer tasks it once took both the Chooser and a desktop printer to accomplish. The rest of the familiar printing activities are available under the File menu of each application. The Print Center is located in /Applications/Utilities.

Note that just adding a printer in the Print Center is not sufficient to be able to print directly from the command line. In Chapter 23, “File and Resource Sharing,” we will look at an example of adding a printer that we can use directly at the command line. However, adding a printer to the Print Center is sufficient to be able to print from the terminal application, as you would any other typical OS X application.
