       lpoptions - display or set printer options and defaults

       lpoptions  [  -E  ]  [  -U  username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -d destination[/instance] [ -o
       option[=value] ] ... [ -o option[=value] ]
       lpoptions [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] [ -p destination[/instance] ] -l
       lpoptions [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] [	-o  option[=value]  ]  ...  [  -o
       option[=value] ] [ -p destination[/instance] ] -r option
       lpoptions [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -x destination[/instance]

       lpoptions  displays  or	sets  printer  options and defaults.  lpoptions shows the default
       printer options when run with no arguments. Other options include:

	    Enables encryption when communicating with the CUPS server.

       -U username
	    Uses an alternate username.

       -d destination[/instance]
	    Sets the user default printer to destination. If instance is supplied then that  par-
	    ticular  instance  is  used. This option overrides the system default printer for the
	    current user.

       -h server[:port]
	    Uses an alternate server.

	    Lists the printer specific options and their current settings.

       -o option[=value]
	    Specifies a new option for the named destination.

       -p destination[/instance]
	    Sets the destination and instance, if specified, for any options that follow. If  the
	    named instance does not exist then it is created.

       -r option
	    Removes the specified option for the named destination.

       -x destination[/instance]
	    Removes  the  options  for	the  named destination and instance, if specified. If the
	    named instance does not exist then this does nothing.

       If no options are specified using the -o option, then the current options  for  the  named
       printer are reported on the standard output.

       Options set with the lpoptions command are used by the lp(1) and lpr(1) commands when sub-
       mitting jobs.

       When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default options and instances  for  all
       users in the /etc/cups/lpoptions file.

       The lpoptions command is unique to CUPS.

       ~/.cups/lpoptions - user defaults and instances created by non-root users.
       /etc/cups/lpoptions - system-wide defaults and instances created by the root user.
