SYNOPSIS

       lpoptions  [  -E  ]  [  -U  username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -d destination[/instance] [ -o

       lpoptions [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] [  -o  option[=value]  ]  ...  [  -o
       option[=value] ] [ -p destination[/instance] ] -r option
       lpoptions [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h server[:port] ] -x destination[/instance]

DESCRIPTION

       lpoptions  displays  or  sets  printer  options and defaults.  lpoptions shows the default
       printer options when run with no arguments. Other options include:

       -E
            Enables encryption when communicating with the CUPS server.

       -U username
            Uses an alternate username.

       -d destination[/instance]
            Sets the user default printer to destination.  If  instance  is  supplied  then  that
            particular instance is used. This option overrides the system default printer for the
            current user.

       -h server[:port]
            Uses an alternate server.

       -l
            Lists the printer specific options and their current settings.

       -o option[=value]
            Specifies a new option for the named destination.

       -p destination[/instance]
            Sets the destination and instance, if specified, for any options that follow. If  the
            named instance does not exist then it is created.

       -r option
            Removes the specified option for the named destination.

       -x destination[/instance]
            Removes  the  options  for  the  named destination and instance, if specified. If the
            named instance does not exist then this does nothing.

       If no options are specified using the -o option, then the current options  for  the  named
       printer are reported on the standard output.

       Options  set  with  the  lpoptions  command are used by the lp(1) and lpr(1) commands when
       submitting jobs.

ROOT ACCOUNT OPTIONS

       When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default options and instances  for  all
       users in the /etc/cups/lpoptions file.

COMPATIBILITY

       The lpoptions command is unique to CUPS.

FILES

       ~/.cups/lpoptions - user defaults and instances created by non-root users.
       /etc/cups/lpoptions - system-wide defaults and instances created by the root user.
