cupsd(8)                     (CUPS)                      cupsd(8)

     NAME
          cupsd - cups scheduler

     SYNOPSIS
          cupsd [ -c cupsd.conf ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -s
          cups-files.conf ] [ -t ]

     DESCRIPTION
          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 Every-
          where. If no options are specified on the command-line then
          the default configuration file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be
          used.

     OPTIONS
          -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.

     FILES
          /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

     CONFORMING TO

          operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific admin-
          istrative operations.
