1. NAME

cupsd - cups scheduler

2. SYNOPSIS

cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -t ]

3. DESCRIPTION

cupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.

4. OPTIONS

  • -c config-file
         
    Uses the named configuration file.
  • -f
         
    Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon".
  • -F
         
    Run cupsd in the foreground but detach the process from the controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running cupsd from init(8).
  • -h
         
    Shows the program usage.
  • -l
         
    This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8).
  • -t
         
    Test the configuration file for syntax errors.

5. COMPATIBILITY

cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations.
