cupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.


-c config-file

Uses the named configuration file.


Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon".


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).


Shows the program usage.


This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8).


Test the configuration file for syntax errors.


cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations.
