It can also be used to set the server default printer or class. .LP When specified before the \fI-d\fR, \fI-p\fR, or \fI-x\fR options, the \fI-E\fR option forces encryption when connecting to the server. .LP The first form of the command sets the default printer or class to \fIdestination\fR. Subsequent print jobs submitted via the \fIlp(1)\fR or \fIlpr(1)\fR commands will use this destination unless the user specifies otherwise with the \fIlpoptions(1)\fR command. .LP The second form of the command configures the named printer. The additional options are described below. .LP The third form of the command deletes the printer or class \fIdestination\fR. Any jobs that are pending for the destination will be removed and any job that is currently printed will be aborted. .SH CONFIGURATION OPTIONS The following options are recognized when configuring a printer queue: .TP 5 \-c \fIclass\fR .br Adds the named \fIprinter\fR to \fIclass\fR. If \fIclass\fR does not exist it is created automatically. .TP 5 \-i \fIinterface\fR .br Sets a System V style interface script for the printer. This option cannot be specified with the \fI\-P\fR option (PPD file) and is intended for providing support for legacy printer drivers. .TP 5 \-m \fImodel\fR .br Sets a standard System V interface script or PPD file from the model directory. .TP 5 \-o \fIname=value\fR .br Sets a PPD or server option for the printer. PPD options can be listed using the \fI-l\fR option with the \fIlpoptions(1)\fR command. .TP 5 \-o \fIjob-k-limit=value\fR .br Sets the kilobyte limit for per-user quotas. The value is an integer number of kilobytes; one kilobyte is 1024 bytes. .TP 5 \-o \fIjob-page-limit=value\fR .br Sets the page limit for per-user quotas. The value is the integer number of pages that can be printed; double-sided pages are counted as two pages. .TP 5 \-o \fIjob-quota-period=value\fR .br Sets the accounting period for per-user quotas. The value is an integer number of seconds; 86,400 seconds are in one day. .TP 5 \-o \fIprotocol=name\fR .br Sets the binary communications protocol to use when printing, None, BCP, or TBCP. The default protocol is None. .TP 5 \-r \fIclass\fR .br Removes the named \fIprinter\fR from \fIclass\fR. If the resulting class becomes empty it is removed. .TP 5 \-u \fIallow:user,user,@group\fR \-u \fIdeny:user,user,@group\fR \-u \fIallow:all\fR \-u \fIdeny:none\fR .br Sets user-level access control on a printer. Names starting with "@" are interpreted as UNIX groups. The latter two forms turn user-level access control off. .TP 5 \-v \fIdevice-uri\fR .br Sets the \fIdevice-uri\fR attribute of the printer queue. If \fIdevice-uri\fR is a filename it is automatically converted to the form \fBfile:/file/name\fR. .TP 5 \-D \fIinfo\fR .br Provides a textual description of the printer. .TP 5 \-E .br Enables the printer and accepts jobs; this is the same as running the \fIaccept(8)\fR and \fIenable(8)\fR programs on the printer. .TP 5 \-L \fIlocation\fR .br Provides a textual location of the printer. .TP 5 \-P \fIppd-file\fR .br Specifies a PostScript Printer Description file to use with the printer. If specified, this option overrides the \fI-i\fR option (interface script). .SH COMPATIBILITY Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain any printable character except SPACE and TAB. Also, printer and class names are \fBnot\fR case-sensitive. Finally, the CUPS version of \fIlpadmin\fR may ask the user for an access password depending on the printing system configuration. This differs from the System V version which requires the root user to execute this command. .SH LIMITATIONS The CUPS version of \fIlpadmin\fR does not support all of the System V or Solaris printing system configuration options. .SH SEE ALSO accept(8), cancel(1), disable(8), enable(8), lp(1), lpstat(1), reject(8), CUPS Software Administrators Manual, http://localhost:631/documentation.html .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 1993-2005 by Easy Software Products, All Rights Reserved. .\" .\" End of "$Id: lpadmin.man,v 184.108.40.206 2005/01/04 19:16:06 jlovell Exp $". .\"
