no longer install cups by default in Whonix-Workstation
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Cups does not get installed by default in Qubes, right?

cups is still a default dependency of the qubes-whonix package. Was added back then by @nrgaway.

I think it's not all that important to have print by default capabilities in Whonix-Workstation. And would advice to do that from another VM anyhow.

I don't like that it's creating a local TCP listener. When installed, even runs by default in Qubes TemplateVMs.

Any voice against removing cups from default Qubes-Whonix installation? @marmarek
