lprsetup - printer spooler set up program
The command provides an interactive easy-to-use facility for administrating the line printers on your system. The program contains on-line
help and default answers to questions about adding, deleting, or changing the characteristics of any of the line printers on your system.
Whenever a question is asked, the default selection is given in ] . You can press Return in response to the question to accept the
default, or enter an alternate value for the given parameter.
The program knows about all of the possible symbols in the file. See for a current list. After you have entered a printer specification,
and have verified that it is correct, then creates the spooling directory, links the output filter, and creates an entry for the new
If the printer is connected to your system, you must specify the printer device name which is in the lp printcap entry.
If lp is set to nn you are prompted to choose between or If your printer is connected to a port on your system, choose the default setting,
If you choose you are prompted for the baud rate, br. The default is the recommended baud rate for the printer.
If you want to set up your printer to a LAT line, choose the option. At this point, proceeds only if you have chosen a valid LAT device
for lp. It assumes that the LAT device has been configured for host initiated connections using If it has not, you must do this before the
queue works. For information about how to set up a LAT line, see Chapter 3 of the Guide to Ethernet Communications Servers.
If lp is set to another device, for example the program assumes that you are setting up a printer with a parallel port, for example, It
does not prompt you for device type information, and serial port specific entries are not put into the entry.
