CUPS is the default printing system in debian. To set up CUPS you need to install at least these packages: cupsys, cupsys-bsd, cupsys-driver-gimpprint, foomatic-bin, and foomatic-db. You can install them with the command "aptitude --with-recommends --with-suggests install cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-driver-gimpprint foomatic-bin foomatic-db" to ensure that you get all the necessary packages.

Next, make sure the loopback interface is configured in etc/network/interfaces so that your computer can talk to itself. There should be these two lines:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

CUPS can be configured with KDE's or Gnome's printing tools or you can use CUPS's own setup program by opening a web browser and typing "http://localhost:631" in the browser's address space.
