For a system set up from scratch (7.1) I'm about to set up printing.

Printer: Minolta C351 (basically a networked PS-Printer also capable
of color)

My requirements: Print from mutt (mail), print text files, print
PS-files with the ability to print duplex and 2-up both in color and

Should I go for the standard vanilla FreeBSD lpr that comes with the
system or use anything else? If "anything else" - what (CUPS,...?)

Please note that I want to print both from gnome (X-win) as well as
via the commadline.

Thanks in advance for any clue,
