SYNOPSIScupsd [ -c cupsd.conf ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -s cups-files.conf ] [ -t ]
DESCRIPTIONcupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1, and supports most of the requirements for IPP Everywhere. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.
- -c cupsd.conf
- Uses the named cupsd.conf configuration file.
- Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon".
- 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).
- Shows the program usage.
- This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8) or systemd(8).
- -s cups-files.conf
- Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file.
- Test the configuration file for syntax errors.
