cups-deviced - cups device daemon SYNOPSIS
cups-deviced request-id limit user-id options DESCRIPTION
cups-deviced polls the backends in /usr/lib/cups/backend for a list of available devices. It is run by cupsd(8) in response to a CUPS-Get- Devices request. The output format is an IPP response message. The request-id argument is the request ID from the original IPP request, typically 1. The limit argument is the limit value from the original IPP request - 0 means no limit. The user-id argument is the request- ing-user-name value from the original IPP request. Finally, the options argument is a space-delimited list of attributes ("name=value name=value ...") that were passed in with the request. Currently cups-deviced looks for the requested-attributes attribute and tailors the output accordingly. SEE ALSO

cupsd-helper - cupsd helper programs SYNOPSIS
cups-deviced request-id limit user-id options cups-driverd cat ppd-name cups-driverd list request_id limit options cups-exec sandbox-profile [ -g group-id ] [ -n nice-value ] [ -u user-id ] /path/to/program argv0 ... argvN DESCRIPTION
The cupsd-helper programs perform long-running operations on behalf of the scheduler, cupsd(8). The cups-deviced helper program runs each CUPS backend(7) with no arguments in order to discover the available printers. The cups-driverd helper program lists all available printer drivers, a subset of "matching" printer drivers, or a copy of a specific driver PPD file. The cups-exec helper program runs backends, filters, and other programs. On macOS these programs are run in a secure sandbox. FILES
The cups-driverd program looks for PPD and driver information files in the following directories: /Library/Printers /opt/share/ppd /System/Library/Printers /usr/local/share/ppd /usr/share/cups/drv /usr/share/cups/model /usr/share/ppd PPD files can be compressed using the gzip(1) program or placed in compressed tar(1) archives to further reduce their size. Driver information files must conform to the format defined in ppdcfile(5). SEE ALSO
