cupsd(8)                    Easy Software Products                    cupsd(8)



NAME
       cupsd - common unix printing system daemon

SYNOPSIS
       cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ]

DESCRIPTION
       cupsd  is  the scheduler for the Common UNIX Printing System. It imple-
       ments a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, ver-
       sion  1.1.   If  no  options are specified on the command-line then the
       default configuration file (usually /etc/cups/cupsd.conf) will be used.

       The -f option forces cupsd to run in the foreground; the default is  to
       run in the background as a "daemon".

       The  -F  option  forces cupsd to run in the foreground but detaches the
       process from the controlling terminal and current  directory.  This  is
       useful for running cupsd from init.

COMPATIBILITY
       cupsd implements all of the required IPP/1.1 attributes and operations.
       It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations.
