       lpadmin - configure cups printers and classes

       lpadmin [ -E ] [-U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -d destination
       lpadmin	[ -E ] [-U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -p destination [ -R
       name-default ] option(s)
       lpadmin [ -E ] [-U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -x destination

       lpadmin configures printer and class queues provided by	CUPS.  It  can
       also be used to set the server default printer or class.

       When  specified	before the -d, -p, or -x options, the -E option forces
       encryption when connecting to the server.

       The first form of the command (-d) sets the default printer or class to
       destination.   Subsequent  print jobs submitted via the lp(1) or lpr(1)
       commands will use this destination unless the user specifies  otherwise
       with the lpoptions(1) command.

       The  second  form  of  the command (-p) configures the named printer or
       class.  The additional options are described below.

       The third form of the command (-x) deletes the printer or class	desti‐
       nation.	Any  jobs that are pending for the destination will be removed
       and any job that is currently printed will be aborted.

       The following options are recognized when configuring a printer queue:

       -c class
	    Adds the named printer to class.  If class does not	 exist	it  is
	    created automatically.

       -i interface
	    Sets  a  System  V	style  interface  script for the printer. This
	    option cannot be specified with the -P option (PPD	file)  and  is
	    intended for providing support for legacy printer drivers.

       -m model
	    Sets  a  standard  System  V  interface script or PPD file for the
	    printer from the model directory or using one of the driver inter‐
	    faces.  Use the -m option with the lpinfo(8) command to get a list
	    of supported models.

       -o cupsIPPSupplies=true

       -o cupsIPPSupplies=false
	    Specifies whether IPP supply level values should be reported.

       -o cupsSNMPSupplies=true

       -o cupsSNMPSupplies=false
	    Specifies whether SNMP supply level (RFC 3805)  values  should  be

       -o job-k-limit=value
	    Sets the kilobyte limit for per-user quotas. The value is an inte‐
	    ger number of kilobytes; one kilobyte is 1024 bytes.

       -o job-page-limit=value
	    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.

       -o job-quota-period=value
	    Sets the accounting period for per-user quotas. The	 value	is  an
	    integer number of seconds; 86,400 seconds are in one day.

       -o job-sheets-default=banner

       -o job-sheets-default=banner,banner
	    Sets the default banner page(s) to use for print jobs.

       -o name=value
	    Sets a PPD option for the printer. PPD options can be listed using
	    the -l option with the lpoptions(1) command.

       -o name-default=value
	    Sets a default server-side option for the destination. Any	print-
	    time  option can be defaulted, e.g. "-o cpi-default=17" to set the
	    default "cpi" option value to 17.

       -o port-monitor=name
	    Sets the binary  communications  program  to  use  when  printing,
	    "none", "bcp", or "tbcp". The default program is "none". The spec‐
	    ified port monitor must be listed in the printer's PPD file.

       -o printer-error-policy=name
	    Sets the error policy to be	 used  when  the  printer  backend  is
	    unable  to	send  the  job to the printer. The name must be one of
	    "abort-job", "retry-job", "retry-current-job", or  "stop-printer".
	    The	 default  error	 policy	 is  "stop-printer"  for  printers and
	    "retry-current-job" for classes.

       -o printer-is-shared=true/false
	    Sets the destination to shared/published or	 unshared/unpublished.
	    Shared/published destinations are publicly announced by the server
	    on the LAN based on	 the  browsing	configuration  in  cupsd.conf,
	    while  unshared/unpublished	 destinations  are  not announced. The
	    default value is "true".

       -o printer-op-policy=name
	    Sets the IPP operation policy associated with the destination. The
	    name  must	be defined in the cupsd.conf in a Policy section.  The
	    default operation policy is "default".

       -R name-default
	    Deletes the named option from printer.

       -r class
	    Removes the named printer from  class.   If	 the  resulting	 class
	    becomes empty it is removed.

       -u allow:user,user,@group

       -u deny:user,user,@group

       -u allow:all

       -u deny:none
	    Sets  user-level  access  control on a destination. Names starting
	    with "@" are interpreted as UNIX groups. The latter two forms turn
	    user-level access control off.

       -v "device-uri"
	    Sets  the  device-uri  attribute  of the printer queue. Use the -v
	    option with the lpinfo(8) command  to  get	a  list	 of  supported
	    device URIs and schemes.

       -D "info"
	    Provides a textual description of the destination.

	    Enables the destination and accepts jobs; this is the same as run‐
	    ning the cupsaccept(8) and cupsenable(8) programs on the  destina‐

       -L "location"
	    Provides a textual location of the destination.

       -P ppd-file
	    Specifies  a  PostScript  Printer Description file to use with the
	    printer. If specified, this option overrides the -i option (inter‐
	    face script).

       Unlike  the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to con‐
       tain any printable character except SPACE, TAB,	"/",  or  "#".	 Also,
       printer and class names are not case-sensitive.	Finally, the CUPS ver‐
       sion of lpadmin may ask the user for an access  password	 depending  on
       the  printing system configuration. This differs from the System V ver‐
       sion which requires the root user to execute this command.

       The CUPS version of lpadmin does not support all of  the	 System	 V  or
       Solaris printing system configuration options.
