PATHS

To hide Printers from users, use the following pathes:
/etc/gtklp/accept/
/etc/gtklp/deny/
$HOME/.gtklp/

Just put an empty file with the name of the printer the user should see by default to accept, put an empty file with the name of the printer the user should never see to deny.
The accept values can be overwritten by the user, the deny values can't.

SPECIAL

If you can`t connect to an X-Server, GtkLPQ acts as console-lpq.

If called as lpq, enable, disable, accept, or reject, GtkLPQ acts on console like these tools and has some other command-line parameters, see above.
