       ippeveprinter is a simple Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) server conforming  to  the  IPP
       Everywhere (PWG 5100.14) specification. It can be used to test client software or act as a
       very basic print server that runs a command for every job that is printed.


       The following options are recognized by ippeveprinter:

            Show program usage.

            Disable the web interface forms used to update the media and supply levels.

       --pam-service service
            Set the PAM service name.  The default service is "cups".

            Show the CUPS version.

       -2   Report support for two-sided (duplex) printing.

       -A   Enable  authentication  for  the  created  printer.   ippeveprinter   uses   PAM   to
            authenticate HTTP Basic credentials.

       -D device-uri
            Set  the  device  URI  for  print output.  The URI can be a filename, directory, or a
            network socket URI of the form  "socket://ADDRESS[:PORT]"  (where  the  default  port
            number  is  9100).   When specifying a directory, ippeveprinter will create an output
            file using the job ID and name.

       -F output-type/subtype[,...]
            Specifies the output MIME media type.  The default is  "application/postscript"  when
            the -P option is specified.

       -M manufacturer
            Set the manufacturer of the printer.  The default is "Example".

       -P filename.ppd
            Load  printer  attributes from the specified PPD file.  This option is typically used
            in conjunction with the ippeveps(7) printer command ("-c ippeveps").

       -V 1.1

       -V 2.0
            Specifies the maximum IPP version to report.  2.0 is the default.

       -c command
            Run the specified command for each document that is printed.  If "command" is not  an
            absolute  path  ("/path/to/command"),  ippeveprinter  looks  for  the  command in the
            "command" subdirectory of the CUPS binary directory, typically  /usr/lib/cups/command
            or /usr/libexec/cups/command.  The cups-config(1) command can be used to discover the
            correct   binary   directory   ("cups-config   --serverbin").    In   addition,   the
            CUPS_SERVERBIN  environment  variable can be used to override the default location of
            this directory - see the cups(1) man page for more details.

       -d spool-directory
            Specifies the directory that will hold the print files.  The default is  a  directory
            under the user's current temporary directory.

       -f type/subtype[,...]
            Specifies  a  list  of  MIME  media  types  that the server will accept.  The default
            depends on the type of printer created.

       -i iconfile.png
            Specifies the printer icon file for the server.  The file must be a PNG format image.
            The default is an internally-provided PNG image.

       -k   Keeps the print documents in the spool directory rather than deleting them.

       -l location
            Specifies  the  human-readable  location  string that is reported by the server.  The
            default is the empty string.

       -m model
            Specifies the model name of the printer.  The default is "Printer".

       -n hostname
            Specifies the hostname that is reported by the  server.   The  default  is  the  name
            returned by the hostname(1) command.

       -p port
            Specifies  the  port number to listen on.  The default is a user-specific number from
            8000 to 8999.

       -r off
            Turns off DNS-SD service advertisements entirely.

       -r subtype[,subtype]
            Specifies the DNS-SD subtype(s) to advertise.   Separate  multiple  subtypes  with  a
            comma.  The default is "_print".

       -s speed[,color-speed]
            Specifies  the  printer  speed in pages per minute.  If two numbers are specified and
            the second number is greater than zero, the server  will  report  support  for  color
            printing.  The default is "10,0".

            Be (very) verbose when logging activity to standard error.


       The  ippeveprinter program returns 1 if it is unable to process the command-line arguments
       or register  the  IPP  service.   Otherwise  ippeveprinter  will  run  continuously  until


       The  ippeveprinter  program  is  unique  to  CUPS  and conforms to the IPP Everywhere (PWG
       5100.14) specification.


       ippeveprinter adds environment variables starting with "IPP_" for all IPP  Job  attributes
       in the print request.  For example, when executing a command for an IPP Job containing the
       "media" Job Template attribute, the "IPP_MEDIA" environment variable will be  set  to  the
       value of that attribute.

       In  addition, all IPP "xxx-default" and "pwg-xxx" Printer Description attributes are added
       to the environment.  For example, the "IPP_MEDIA_DEFAULT" environment variable will be set
       to the default value for the "media" Job Template attribute.

       Enumerated  values  are  converted  to  their keyword equivalents.  For example, a "print-
       quality" Job Template attribute with a enum value of 3 will become the "IPP_PRINT_QUALITY"
       environment  variable  with  a  value of "draft".  This string conversion only happens for
       standard Job Template attributes,  currently  "finishings",  "orientation-requested",  and

       Finally,  the  "CONTENT_TYPE"  environment  variable  contains  the MIME media type of the
       document being printed, the "DEVICE_URI" environment variable contains the device  URI  as
       specified  with  the  "-D"  option,  the "OUTPUT_FORMAT" environment variable contains the
       output MIME media type, and the "PPD" environment variable contains the  PPD  filename  as
       specified with the "-P" option.


       Unless they communicate directly with a printer, print commands send printer-ready data to
       the standard output.

       Print commands can send messages back to ippeveprinter on the standard error with  one  of
       the following prefixes:

       ATTR: attribute=value[ attribute=value]
            Sets  the  named  attribute(s)  to  the  given  values.   Currently  only  the  "job-
            impressions" and "job-impressions-completed" Job Status attributes and  the  "marker-
            xxx",  "printer-alert",  "printer-alert-description", "printer-supply", and "printer-
            supply-description" Printer Status attributes can be set.

       DEBUG: Debugging message
            Logs a debugging message if at least two -v's have been specified.

       ERROR: Error message
            Logs an error message and copies the message to the "job-state-message" attribute.

       INFO: Informational message
            Logs an informational/progress message if  -v  has  been  specified  and  copies  the
            message to the "job-state-message" attribute unless an error has been reported.

       STATE: keyword[,keyword,...]
            Sets the printer's "printer-state-reasons" attribute to the listed keywords.

       STATE: -keyword[,keyword,...]
            Removes the listed keywords from the printer's "printer-state-reasons" attribute.

       STATE: +keyword[,keyword,...]
            Adds the listed keywords to the printer's "printer-state-reasons" attribute.


       Run ippeveprinter with a service name of My Cool Printer:

           ippeveprinter "My Cool Printer"

       Run the file(1) command whenever a job is sent to the server:

           ippeveprinter -c /usr/bin/file "My Cool Printer"
