lpusers - set printing queue priorities
lpusers -d priority-level
lpusers -q priority-level -u login-ID-list
lpusers -u login-ID-list
lpusers -q priority-level
The lpusers command sets limits to the queue priority level
that can be assigned to jobs submitted by users of the LP
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(1)), the default priority level 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
login-ID-list can request when submitting a print request.
The login-ID-list argument may include any or all of the
A user on any system
A user on the system system_name
All users on system system_name
A user on all systems
all All users on all systems
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 that has already been submit-
ted to have a higher priority. Any print requests submitted
with priority levels higher than allowed will be given the
highest priority allowed.
The third form of the command (with -u) removes any expli-
cit priority level for the specified users.
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.
The following options are supported:
Set the system-wide priority default to priority-
-l List the default priority level and the priority lim-
its assigned to users.
