cupsenable [ -E ] [-U username ] [ -c ] [ -h server[:port] ] destination(s)

DESCRIPTION

cupsenable starts the named printers or classes.

cupsdisable stops the named printers or classes. The following options may be used:
-E Forces encryption of the connection to the server.
-U username
  Uses the specified username when connecting to the server.
-c Cancels all jobs on the named destination.
-h server[:port]
  Uses the specified server and port.
-r "reason"
  Sets the message associated with the stopped state. If no reason is specified then the message is set to "Reason Unknown".

COMPATIBILITY

Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#". Also, printer and class names are not case-sensitive.

The System V versions of these commands are disable and enable. They have been renamed to avoid conflicts with the bash(1) build-in command of the same name.

The CUPS versions of disable and enable may ask the user for an access password depending on the printing system configuration. This differs from the System V versions which require the root user to execute these commands.
