NAME
lpoptions - display or set printer options and defaults SYNOPSIS
lpoptions [ -E ] [ -h server[:port] ] -d destination[/instance] [ -l ] lpoptions [ -E ] [ -h server[:port] ] [ -p destination[/instance] ] -o option[=value] ... lpoptions [ -E ] [ -h server[:port] ] [ -p destination[/instance] ] -r option lpoptions [ -E ] [ -h server[:port] ] -x destination[/instance] DESCRIPTION
lpoptions displays or sets printer options and defaults. If no printer is specified using the -p option, the default printer is used as described in lp(1). If no -l, -o, or -r options are specified, the current options are reported on the standard output. Options set with the lpoptions command are used by the lp(1) and lpr(1) commands when submitting jobs. When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default options and instances for all users in the /etc/cups/lpoptions file. Otherwise, the per-user defaults are managed in the ~/.cups/lpoptions file. OPTIONS
lpoptions supports the following options: -E Enables encryption when communicating with the CUPS server. -d destination[/instance] Sets the user default printer to destination. If instance is supplied then that particular instance is used. This option overrides the system default printer for the current user. -h server[:port] Uses an alternate server. -l 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 cre- ated. Destinations can only be created using the lpadmin(8) program. -r option Removes the specified option from 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 noth- ing. Destinations can only be removed using the lpadmin(8) command. FILES
~/.cups/lpoptions - user defaults and instances created by non-root users. /etc/cups/lpoptions - system-wide defaults and instances created by the root user. CONFORMING TO
The lpoptions command is unique to CUPS. SEE ALSO
