FOOMATIC-PRINTJOB(1) General Commands Manual FOOMATIC-PRINTJOB(1)
foomatic-printjob - manage printer jobs in a spooler-independent fashion
foomatic-printjob [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -o option1=value1 -o option2 ... ] [ -i ] [ file1 file2 ... ]
foomatic-printjob -Q [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ -a ] [ user1 user2 ... ]
foomatic-printjob -R [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ]
foomatic-printjob -C [ -s spooler ] [ -i ] command [ arguments ]
foomatic-printjob -S [ -s spooler ] [ -i ]
foomatic-printjob -h [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ]
foomatic-printjob provides a spooler-independent interface to creating and managing printer jobs and print queues. Note that the first
argument changes the mode of the command, as it combines the functionality of several System V-style printing commands.
-sspooler Explicit spooler type.
Any commands specified should apply to this queue instead of the default.
Set option to value
-ooption Set the switch option
-#n Print n copies
file1 file2 ...
Files to be printed, when no file is given, standard input will be printed
-Q Query the jobs in a queue. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried.
-Q -a Query the jobs in all queues. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried.
-R [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ]
Remove a job from a queue. Using - will remove all jobs.
-C command [ arguments ]
Execute control commands for queue/job manipulation. The commands are the ones of the BSD "lpc" utility. Use the control command
"help" to get a list of supported commands. Note: the amount of commands varies with the spooler, but the same commands given
under different spoolers do the same thing.
-i Interactive mode: You will be asked if foomatic-printjob is in doubt about something. Otherwise foomatic-printjob uses auto-
detection or quits with an error.
-S Save the chosen spooler as the default spooler
-h Show this message or show a list of available options if a queue is specified
foomatic-configure(1) and the documentation for your print spooler.
