Printer Parameters: Options


This appendix provides the options that you can use for the following supported printer parameters:

JetDirectPrinter

NetworkPrinter

Printer

PrinterURI

SMBPrinter


Tip You can use supported printer parameters in wlx.ini and $MAC.ini files.



Tip In the following tables, default values appear in bold.


JetDirectPrinter

Table B-1 describes the supported options you can use for the JetDirectPrinter parameter.

The JetDirectPrinter command line defines a printer that is served by an HP JetDirect print server.


Caution Only the Name option is required for all supported printer parameters; other options you can use for the printer parameter are optional.

Example:

JetDirectPrinter=host common parameters

Table B-1 JetDirectPrinter Options 

Parameter
Description

[Default={yes, no}]

Specifies whether the option block defines the default printer for the thin client. If you specify this option on more than one printer definition in the INI file, the last instance you specify (with Default=yes) is the default.

[Description=text]

Offers a short, human-readable description of the printer being defined. If the description includes blank spaces, you must enclose the full description in quotation marks.

[Enable={yes, no}]

Specifies whether the printer is available for use.

[EnableLPD={yes, no}]

This parameter is retained for backward compatibility; otherwise, it is ignored.

[ModelID=Linux driver name]

Identifies the printer for the purpose of choosing a Linux printer driver (for example, "HP LaserJet 4"). Usually this parameter is not specified for all locally attached printers; it is used for LPR printers on the network.

Name=printer name

Specifies both the name that is given in the local printers list and the internal name of the local print queue. Name must be between 1 and 16 characters, starting with a letter and composed entirely of letters, digits, underscores, and dashes.

Note This parameter is mandatory (all other common parameters are optional).

[PrinterID=Windows driver]

Identifies the printer for the purpose of choosing a Windows printer driver (for example, "Brother MFC-420CN Printer"). Specify this parameter if you are forwarding the printer access to a Citrix or RDESKTOP connection.

[printers.autolocate={no, yes}]

Specifies whether to automatically locate and register available printers. Default is no.

[PPD=PPD name]

Directly specifies a Postscript Printer Definition filename for use as a local printer driver.

Note The PPD option can be useful when you attach a local printer for which you already have a Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) configuration on another system.

ThinPrintClass=
PrinterName1=Class1[;PrinterNa
me2=Class2]

Sets the class name for a printer.

Example:

ThinPrintClass=LaserJet-Series=PCL5;DeskJet-S eries=PS


NetworkPrinter

Table B-2 describes the supported options you can use for the NetworkPrinter parameter.

The NetworkPrinter command line defines a printer that uses traditional UNIX Line Printer Daemon protocols.


Caution Only the Name option is required for all supported printer parameters; other options you can use for the printer parameter are optional.

Example:

NetworkPrinter=LPD Queue=printer-queue-name-on-server

me2=Class2]

Sets the class name for a printer.

Example:

ThinPrintClass=LaserJet-Series=PCL5;DeskJet-S eries=PS


Printer

Table B-3 contains the supported options you can use for the Printer parameter.

The Printer command line defines a locally attached printer connected through the noted interface.


Caution Only the Name option is required for all supported printer parameters; other options you can use for the printer parameter are optional.

Example:

Printer={[USB][USB1][USB2][USBLPT1][USBLPT2][USBSER1][USBSER2] [COM1][COM2]} common parameters

Table B-3 Printer Options

PrinterURI

Table B-4 contains the supported options you can use for the PrinterURI parameter.

The PrinterURI command line defines a printer using a URI that is supported by the Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS). This command is useful when you want the thin client to access a printer for which you already have a working CUPS client because you can simply copy the URI from the /cups/printers.conf file on the existing client.


Caution Only the Name option is required for all supported printer parameters; other options you can use for the printer parameter are optional.

Example:

PrinterURI=[ipp://[user[:password]@host[:port]/path
  [http://[user[:password]@host[:port]/path
  [socket://host[:port]
  [lpd://host/queue
  [smb://[user[:password]@[workgroup/]
    server[:port]/sharename
  [usb:/dev/usb/lpunit
  [parallel:/dev/lpunit
  [serial:/dev/ttySunit?baud=speed

common parameters


Tip Additional protocols beyond those listed here (for example, FTP and TFTP) may be supported by the CUPS system on the thin client.
