       lpadmin - configure cups printers and classes

       lpadmin [ -E ] [ -h server ] -d destination
       lpadmin [ -E ] [ -h server ] -p printer option(s)
       lpadmin [ -E ] [ -h server ] -x destination

       lpadmin	configures  printer  and class queues provided by CUPS. It can
       also be used to set the system default printer or class.

       When specified before the -d, -p, or -x options, the -E	option	forces
       encryption when connecting to the server.

       The first form of the command sets the default printer or class to des‐
       tination.  Subsequent print jobs submitted via the lp(1) or lpr(1) com‐
       mands will use this destination unless the user specifies otherwise.

       The second form of the command configures the named printer.  The addi‐
       tional options are described below.

       The third form of the command deletes the printer or class destination.
       Any  jobs  that are pending for the destination will be removed and any
       job that is currently printed will be aborted.

       The following options are recognized when configuring a printer queue:

       -c class
	    Adds the named printer to class.  If class does not	 exist	it  is
	    created automatically.

       -i interface
	    Sets  a  System  V	style  interface script for the printer.  This
	    option cannot be specified with the -P option (PPD	file)  and  is
	    intended for providing support for legacy printer drivers.

       -m model
	    Sets  a  standard  System  V interface script or PPD file from the
	    model directory.

       -o name=value
	    Sets a PPD or server option for the printer. PPD  options  can  be
	    listed using the -l option with the lpoptions(1) command.

       -o job-k-limit=value
	    Sets the kilobyte limit for per-user quotas. The value is an inte‐
	    ger number of kilobytes; one kilobyte is 1024 bytes.

       -o job-page-limit=value
	    Sets the page limit for per-user quotas. The value is the  integer
	    number  of	pages  that  can  be  printed;	double-sided pages are
	    counted as two pages.

       -o job-quota-period=value
	    Sets the accounting period for per-user quotas. The	 value	is  an
	    integer number of seconds; 86,400 seconds are in one day.

       -r class
	    Removes  the  named	 printer  from	class.	If the resulting class
	    becomes empty it is removed.

       -u allow:user,user
	    -u deny:user,user -u allow:all -u deny:none
	    Sets user-level access control on a printer. The latter two	 forms
	    turn user-level access control off.

       -v device-uri
	    Sets the device-uri attribute of the printer queue.	 If device-uri
	    is	a  filename  it	 is  automatically  converted  to   the	  form

       -D info
	    Provides a textual description of the printer.

	    Enables  the printer and accepts jobs; this is the same as running
	    the accept(8) and enable(8) programs on the printer.

       -L location
	    Provides a textual location of the printer.

       -P ppd-file
	    Specifies a PostScript Printer Description file to	use  with  the
	    printer. If specified, this option overrides the -i option (inter‐
	    face script).

       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to  con‐
       tain  any  printable  character except SPACE and TAB. Also, printer and
       class names are not case-sensitive. Finally, the CUPS version of	 lpad‐
       min  may	 ask the user for an access password depending on the printing
       system configuration.  This differs from the  System  V	version	 which
       requires the root user to execute this command.

       The  CUPS  version  of  lpadmin does not support all of the System V or
       Solaris printing system configuration options.
