I'm just using cups-pdf. While it does pretty well, it is not very smart or configurable from where I sit. Perhaps someone who knows this thing very well can tell us if and where the config options hide.
Some other smarter guide might tell us if there are other tools for those who want something smarter than cups-pdf.
With all of the tools and utils to mangle postscript (PS) files, I could see a cups queue that is (a)print to file as PS, that then
(2) converts PS to PDF automatically and (3)[optional] sends the results on to make paper.
PS/ I'd really like to have cups-pdf either prompt for an output file name or have very much smarter resulting file names.
