       lpoptions - display or set printer options and defaults

       lpoptions [ -h server ] -d dest[/instance] [ -o option=value ] ... [ -o option=value ]
       lpoptions [ -h server ] [ -E ] [ -p dest[/instance] ] -l
       lpoptions  [  -h  server  ]  [  -E  ]  [  -o  option=value  ] ... [ -o option=value ] [ -p
       dest[/instance] ] -r option
       lpoptions [ -h server ] [ -E ] -x dest[/instance]

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

	    Enabled encryption when communicating with the CUPS server.

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

       -h server
	    Specifies the CUPS server to communicate with.

	    Lists the printer specific options and their current settings.

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

       -p dest[/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 dest[/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.

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