lpusers -- set printing queue priorities


/usr/lib/lpusers -d priority-level

/usr/lib/lpusers -q priority-level -u user-list

/usr/lib/lpusers -u user-list

/usr/lib/lpusers -q priority-level

/usr/lib/lpusers -l


The lpusers command is used to set limits to the queue priority level that can be assigned to jobs submitted by users of the LP print service.

The first form of the command (with -d) sets the system-wide priority default to priority-level, where priority-level is a value of 0 to 39, with 0 being the highest priority. If a user does not specify a priority level with a print request (see lp(C)), the default priority is used. Initially, the default priority level is 20.

The second form of the command (with -q and -u) sets the default highest priority-level (0-39) that the users in user-list can request when submitting a print request. Users that have been given a limit cannot submit a print request with a higher priority level than the one assigned, nor can they change a request already submitted to have a higher priority. Any print requests with priority levels higher than allowed will be given the highest priority allowed.

The third form of the command (with -u) removes the users from any explicit priority level and returns them to the default priority level.

The fourth form of the command (with -q) sets the default highest priority level for all users not explicitly covered by the use of the second form of this command.

The last form of the command (with -l) lists the default priority level and the priority limits assigned to users.
