papd.conf - Configuration file used by papd(8) to determine the configuration of printers
used by the Netatalk printing daemon
/etc/atalk//papd.conf is the configuration file used by papd to configure the printing
services offered by netatalk. Please note that papd must be enabled in
/etc/atalk//netatalk.conf for this to take any effect. papd shares the same defaults as
lpd on many systems, but not Solaris.
Any line not prefixed with # is interpreted. The configuration lines are composed like:
The simplest case is to have either no papd.conf, or to have one that has no active lines.
In this case, atalkd should auto-discover the local printers on the machine. Please note
that you can split lines by using \.
The possible options are colon delimited (:), and lines must be terminated with colons.
The possible options and flags are:
The am option allows specific UAMs to be specified for a particular printer. It has
no effect if the au flag is not present or if papd authentication was not built
au If present, this flag enables authentication for the printer. Please note that papd
authentication must be built into netatalk for this to take effect.
This specifies the operator name, for lpd spooling.
Allows specification of Appletalk addresses. Usually not needed.
pd=(path to ppd file)
Specifies a particular PPD (printer description file) to associate with the
pr=(lpd printer name)
Sets the lpd printer that this is spooled to.
