See https://wiki.debian.org/CUPSQuickPrintQueues. I would do

Code: Select all

driverless
to get a URI and substute in

Code: Select all

lpadmin -p mx515 -v URI -E -m everywhere
Then test with

Code: Select all

lp -d mx515 /etc/nsswitch.conf

The command is not

Code: Select all

lpadmin -p mx515 -v URI -E -m everywhere
Whatever

Code: Select all

driverless
gives is what is substituted for URI. For example, if driverless gave you

Code: Select all

ipp://envy4500.local:631/ipp/print
you would have

Code: Select all

padmin -p mx515 -v ipp://envy4500.local:631/ipp/print -E -m everywhere
Printing now?
