I've been running Ubuntu since 8.10, and have had every version though
14.04. Since 14.10 had minimal changes and since 14.04 is a Long Term
Service release, I didn't upgrade to 14.10. Every version has been the
standard, including all of the versions with Unity. All have had cups
installed in the standard install. I almost always have done clean installs,
and not upgrades.

I am just hoping some kind person will signpost me to the proper
forums so that they can help me with a couple of printing issues. I
gather that CUPS is no longer used but i'm not sure and i don't know
what has replaced it.
At last my work-place has a couple of machines entirely using just
Kubuntu/Ubuntu and no Windows at all.
With Kubuntu LibreOffice couldn't open files on the file-server but i
fudged it by installing the whole Ubuntu DE (Unity DE and tweaks) and
now people have no problems using Kubuntu. Printing to the
photocopier or the B&W laser printer is fine.
The only problem is trying to print to the colour printer, an Oki
C810, for which there seem to be hundreds of linux drivers but none of
them seem to work. Actually i have only tried about a dozen drivers
but it's tricky to test them especially if my boss is around.
Also although the Kubuntu machines have no trouble printing to the B&W
photocopier but Ubuntu ones can't cope. I have no idea how to find
the drivers on the Kubuntu machines and copy them onto the Ubuntu
Tom have you tried this link :
? I'm told it works on Ubuntu....
With regard to CUPS, if I don't misremember, those file were automatically
installed on my (64-bit) Linux Mint 17.1, so I'm a tad surprised to hear
that they weren't on Ubuntu 14.04 even if, admittedly, the two distros are
not entirely identical....
