       lpoptions - display or set printer options and defaults


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


       lpoptions displays or sets printer options and defaults.  If no printer is specified using
       the -p option, the default printer is used as described in lp(1).

       If no -l, -o, or -r options are  specified,  the  current  options  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.

       When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default options and instances  for  all
       users  in  the  /etc/cups/lpoptions file.  Otherwise, the per-user defaults are managed in
       the ~/.cups/lpoptions file.


       lpoptions supports the following options:

       -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.  Destinations can only be created
            using the lpadmin(8) program.

       -r option
            Removes the specified option from 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.  Destinations can only be
            removed using the lpadmin(8) command.


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


       The lpoptions command is unique to CUPS.
