NAME

       lpadmin - configure cups printers and classes

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.  The
       additional options are described below.

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

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       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 from the
            model directory.

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

       -o job-k-limit=value
            Sets  the  kilobyte  limit  for  per-user  quotas. The value is an
            integer 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 port-monitor=name
            Sets  the  binary  communications  program  to  use when printing,
            "none", "bcp", or "tbcp". The default program is "none".

       -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 printer. 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.  If device-uri
            is  a  filename  it  is  automatically  converted  to   the   form
            file:///file/name.

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

       -E
            Enables  the printer and accepts jobs; this is the same as running
            the accept(8) and cupsenable(8) programs on the printer.

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

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

COMPATIBILITY

       Unlike the System V printing  system,  CUPS  allows  printer  names  to
       contain  any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#".  Also,
       printer and class names are  not  case-sensitive.   Finally,  the  CUPS
       version of lpadmin 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.

LIMITATIONS

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