Supported Distributions CUPS
The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS), a modular printing system for Unix-like
computer operating systems, allows a computer to act as a print server. A computer running
CUPS is a host that can accept print jobs from client computers, process them, and send them
to the appropriate printer.

• The first character of this data string must be the track's specific Start Sentinel (SS) and
the last character must be the specific End Sentinel (ES).
• The characters or data in between the SS and ES can include all of the valid characters

Managing Printer from the Cups Web Interface.
The Web printer management interface is located at:
http://localhost:631/printers
From there you can perform all printer management tasks with a few simple mouse clicks.
Printer-Specific Options
Each printer has its own options that are based on the options in the PPD (driver) file. The
lpoptions command provides a way to see a list of the available options:
lpoptions –p HDP5000 -l ENTER
Each option starts with the option name, a slash, the human readable text for that option, and a
colon. This is followed by a list of values for that option. The asterisk (*) in from of the
value indicates that this is the default setting.
The options themselves follow the colon:
To see a list of available printers
lpstat –p –d ENTER

Setting Printer Options
For many types of files, the default printer options may be sufficient for your needs.
However, at times you may need to change the options for a particular file you are printing.
Cups provides both they System V (lp) and Berkeley (lpr) printing commands.
The lp and lpr commands allow you to pass printer options using the –o options:
lpoptions –o landscape –o scaling=75 –o media=A4 filename.jpg ENTER
lpoptions –p HDP5000 –o PageSize=CR79 (printer specific) ENTER
Canceling Print jobs from Command Line
Use the lpstat command to show jobs and the printers:
lpstat –o –p ENTER
The cancel and lprm commands cancel a print job:
cancel job_id ENTER
lprm job_id ENTER
