Hack the CUPS server to enable AirPrint - wireless printing from your iPad/iPhone. It uses Avahi - a system which facilitates service discovery on a local network via the mDNS/DNS-SD protocol suite, such as Apple's Bonjour - to allow your iOS device to find your CUPS printers.

Edit /etc/cups/cupds.conf and add:

ServerAlias *
yum install avahi-daemon

Download airprint-generate. This script will generate avahi .service files for shared CUPS printers. This script will connect to a CUPS server and for each printer configured and marked as shared will generate a .service file for avahi that is compatible with Apple's AirPrint announcements.

cd /extra
wget --no-check-certificate
