       printers.conf - printer configuration file for cups


       The  printers.conf  file  defines  the  local  printers that are available. It is normally
       located in the /etc/cups directory and is generated automatically by the cupsd(8)  program
       when printers are added or deleted.

       Each  line  in  the  file  can  be  a configuration directive, a blank line, or a comment.
       Comment lines start with the # character.
