Does there exist an iprint client for OES Linux

Simple question.

If you try to install the iprint client for Linux you get several
unresolved dependencies regarding cups and I am hesitant to install
cups on an iprint server because I am pretty sure this would screw
things up.

But if your iprint printers require authentication, you cannot use
these printers locally as without client there is no means of
authentication for print jobs. Neither lpr nor printing from an
application does work.
lpr does ask for a password but fails regardless of the password
entered, if printing from an application this silently fails.

iprint client needs CUPS to work. So for using iprint client on oes linux, you need to install CUPS.
1. Stops iprint server.
2. Install CUPS from OES repository.
3. Start CUPS
4. Install iprint client.

iprint server and iprint client can not work simultaneously on same oes linux server.

So there is no possibility to print directly from an iprint server
other then stopping iprint services as I expected .

Unfortunately yes, due to conflicting dependencies.
