cupsd - cups scheduler
cupsd [ -c cupsd.conf ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -s cups- files.conf ] [ -t ]
cupsd 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. -f Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon". -F 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). -h Shows the program usage. -l 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. -t Test the configuration file for syntax errors.
/etc/cups/classes.conf /etc/cups/cups-files.conf /etc/cups/cupsd.conf /usr/share/cups/mime/mime.convs /usr/share/cups/mime/mime.types /etc/cups/printers.conf /etc/cups/subscriptions.conf
cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administrative operations.
Run cupsd in the background with the default configuration file: cupsd Test a configuration file called test.conf: cupsd -t -c test.conf Run cupsd in the foreground with a test configuration file called test.conf: cupsd -f -c test.conf
