print job manager


' system-config -printer -applet 'u system-config -printer -applet [ --help] [ --version] [ --debug]


system-config -printer -applet is a print job manager for CUPS . Normally it will display a printer icon in the notification area, greyed out when there are no print jobs for the current user . Clicking on the icon displays a simple print job manager for cancelling or reprinting jobs .

To save memory, the applet waits first of all until the user has printed a job before putting the icon in the notification area . To invoke the print job manager before a job has been printed, run the applet with the --no -tray -icon option: a desktop file is provided for this, so that it should appear in the system menu .

As well as displaying a printer icon in the notification area, the applet also provides a D -BUS server for the com .redhat .PrintDriverSelection interface, to help configure a new printer when it is plugged in .


--help Display a short usage message .

--version Display the version of the applet .

--debug Show debugging information .
