DESCRIPTION

       lpoptions displays or sets printer  options  and  defaults.   lpoptions
       shows  the  default  printer  options when run with no arguments. Other
       options include:

       -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  sup-
            plied 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 cre-
            ated.

       -r option
            Removes the specified option for 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.

       If no options are specified using  the  -o  option,  then  the  current
       options for the named printer 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.


ROOT ACCOUNT OPTIONS

       When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default options  and
       instances for all users in the /etc/cups/lpoptions file.


COMPATIBILITY

       The lpoptions command is unique to CUPS.
