1. Archlinux ARM pi zero cups network print server

    Probably like many amongst us the time of the Christmas holidays is perfect to get some IT related stuff back on track. I used to have a print server setup which got broken over time and I didn't found the energy to invest time into fixing it. But the pressure became higher and higher.
