3. DESCRIPTION ▲
cupsfilter is a front-end to the CUPS filter subsystem which allows you to convert a file to a specific format, just as if you had printed the file through CUPS. By default, cupsfilter generates a PDF file.
4. OPTIONS ▲
- -c config-file
Uses the named cupsd.conf configuration file.
Use every filter from the PPD file.
- -j job-id[,N]
Converts document N from the specified job. If N is omitted, document 1 is converted.
- -m mime/type
Specifies the destination file type. The default file type is application/pdf. Use printer/foo to convert to the printer format defined by the filters in the PPD file.
- -n copies
Specifies the number of copies to generate.
- -o name=value
Specifies options to pass to the CUPS filters.
- -p filename.ppd
Specifies the PPD file to use.
- -t title
Specifies the document title.
5. KNOWN ISSUES ▲
cupsfilter currently does not use the filters defined in the PPD file. This will be addressed in a future CUPS release.
