3. DESCRIPTION ▲
lpstat displays status information about the current classes, jobs, and printers. When run with no arguments, lpstat will list jobs queued by the current user.
4. OPTIONS ▲
The lpstat command supports the following options:
Forces encryption when connecting to the server.
Shows the server hostname and port.
Shows the ranking of print jobs.
- -U username
Specifies an alternate username.
- -W which-jobs
Specifies which jobs to show, completed or not-completed (the default). This option must appear before the -o option and/or any printer names, otherwise the default (not-completed) value will be used in the request to the scheduler.
- -a [printer(s)]
Shows the accepting state of printer queues. If no printers are specified then all printers are listed.
- -c [class(es)]
Shows the printer classes and the printers that belong to them. If no classes are specified then all classes are listed.
Shows the current default destination.
- -h server[:port]
Specifies an alternate server.
Shows a long listing of printers, classes, or jobs.
- -o [destination(s)]
Shows the jobs queue on the specified destinations. If no destinations are specified all jobs are shown.
- -p [printer(s)]
Shows the printers and whether or not they are enabled for printing. If no printers are specified then all printers are listed.
Shows whether the CUPS server is running.
Shows a status summary, including the default destination, a list of classes and their member printers, and a list of printers and their associated devices. This is equivalent to using the "-d", "-c", and "-v" options.
Shows all status information. This is equivalent to using the "-r", "-d", "-c", "-v", "-a", "-p", and "-o" options.
- -u [user(s)]

5. COMPATIBILITY ▲
Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/", and "#". Also, printer and class names are not case-sensitive.
The "-h", "-E", "-U", and "-W" options are unique to CUPS.
The Solaris "-f", "-P", and "-S" options are silently ignored.
