NAME

lpset - set printing configuration in /etc/printers.conf or FNS

SYNOPSIS

lpset [ -n system | nisplus | fns ] [ -x ] [ -a key=value ] [ -d key ] destination

DESCRIPTION

The lpset utility sets printing configuration information in the system configuration databases. Use lpset to create and update printing configuration in /etc/printers.conf, printers.org_dir (NIS+), or Federated Naming System (FNS). See nsswitch.conf(4), printers.conf(4), and fns(5). Only a superuser or a member of Group 14 may execute lpset.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported: [-n system|nisplus|fns] Creates or updates the configuration information for the destination entry in /etc/printers.conf, printers.org_dir (NIS+), or FNS printer contexts. sys- tem specifies that the information is created or updated in /etc/printers.conf. nisplus specifies that the information is created or updated in the printers.org_dir NIS+ table. fns specifies that the information is written using federated naming context. If -n is not specified, system is the default. -x Removes all configuration for the destination entry in /etc/printers.conf, printers.org_dir (NIS+), or FNS. -a key=value Configures the specified key=value pair for the desti- nation entry in /etc/printers.conf, printers.org_dir, or FNS. See printers.conf(4) for information regarding the specification of key=value pairs. -d key Deletes the configuration option specified by key for the destination entry in /etc/printers.conf or FNS. See printers.conf(4) for information regarding the specification of key and key=value pairs.
