Quick tip: cups - lpoptions

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDQuick tip for CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) users: use the lpoptions command to view and set specific options for your printer.
Using just 'lpoptions' by itself will report the current settings for the default printer. Use 'lpoptions -p PRINTERNAME' to see options for a specific printer.
To see the options you can change, use 'lpoptions -l' (lowercase 'L').

Then use lpoptions -o Option=Value to change variables / settings permanently.
