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.
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
- -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)]
Shows a list of print jobs queued by the specified users. If no users
are specified, lists the jobs queued by the current user.
- -v [printer(s)]
Shows the printers and what device they are attached to. If no printers
are specified then all printers are listed.
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.
