  CUPS Printing Backend

  The  NoMachine Node  setup procedure could not detect your
  CUPS installation: either  CUPS  is not installed on  your
  system or it was installed in a non-standard path. CUPS is
  needed  in order to  enable  printing  support  in your NX
  system.
  Please note that you can enable  printing support for your
  NX system at any time; to do this make sure  that you have
  CUPS installed then run:

    /usr/NX/scripts/setup/nxnode --printingsetup 

  to specify the location of the CUPS root path.
