NAME
cupsd - common unix printing system daemon SYNOPSIS
cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] DESCRIPTION
cupsd is the scheduler for the Common UNIX Printing System. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, ver- sion 1.1. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file (usually /etc/cups/cupsd.conf) will be used. The -f option forces cupsd to run in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon". The -F option forces cupsd to run in the foreground but detaches the process from the controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running cupsd from init. COMPATIBILITY
cupsd implements all of the required IPP/1.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administation operations. SEE ALSO
