The Raspberry Pi Wheezy distribution (and possibly others) does support CUPS for printing. If you are unfamiliar with CUPS, then this article appears to be a reasonable introduction for using CUPS on the Raspberry Pi: Linux printing using CUPS (Raspberry Pi).

You need to be a member of the LPAdmin Group to use CUPS.

sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi
