Yes, on many occasions. It doesn't cooperate well with CUPS, though, and
it is unnecessarily complex to install, often looking for unheard-of
packages (and then halting), or running to the end of install and then
hanging the system; and then popping up unwanted extra dialog boxes
every time you try to print, and nagging you for an assortment of
strange actions from time to time.

When it works, it seems to work very well, but it takes  alot of care
and feeding, and is very unstable --  updating CUPS can wreck it
entirely (and updating it can wreck CUPS).
