NAME

       cupsd-helper - cupsd helper programs

SYNOPSIS

       cups-deviced request-id limit user-id options
       cups-driverd cat ppd-name
       cups-driverd list request_id limit options
       cups-exec  sandbox-profile [ -g group-id ] [ -n nice-value ] [ -u user-
       id ] /path/to/program argv0 ...  argvN

DESCRIPTION

       The cupsd-helper programs perform long-running operations on behalf  of
       the  scheduler,  cupsd(8).   The  cups-deviced helper program runs each
       CUPS backend(7) with no arguments in order to  discover  the  available
       printers.

       The  cups-driverd helper program lists all available printer drivers, a
       subset of "matching" printer drivers, or a copy of  a  specific  driver
       PPD file.

       The   cups-exec  helper  program  runs  backends,  filters,  and  other
       programs. On OS X these programs are run in a secure sandbox.

FILES

       The cups-driverd program looks for PPD and driver information files  in
       the following directories:

           /Library/Printers
           /opt/share/ppd
           /System/Library/Printers
           /usr/local/share/ppd
           /usr/share/cups/drv
           /usr/share/cups/model
           /usr/share/ppd

       PPD  files  can  be  compressed  using the gzip(1) program or placed in
       compressed tar(1) archives to further reduce their size.

       Driver  information  files  must  conform  to  the  format  defined  in
       ppdcfile(5).
