       lpoptions   [   -h   server  ]  -d  dest[/instance]  [  -o
       option=value ] ... [ -o option=value ]

       lpoptions [ -h server ] [ -E ] [ -o option=value ]  ...  [
       -o option=value ] [ -p dest[/instance] ] -r option
       lpoptions [ -h server ] [ -E ] -x dest[/instance]


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

            Enabled  encryption  when communicating with the CUPS

       -d dest[/instance]
            Sets the default printer to dest. If instance is sup­
            plied  then  that  particular  instance is used. This
            option overrides the system default printer  for  the
            current user.

       -h server
            Specifies the CUPS server to communicate with.

            Lists  the printer specific options and their current

       -o option=value
            Specifies a new option for the named destination.

       -p dest[/instance]
            Sets the destination and instance, if specified,  for
            any  options that follow.  If the named instance does
            not exist then it is created.

       -r option
            Removes the specified option for the  named  destina­

       -x dest[/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
       created by the root user.
