system-config-printer configures a CUPS server. It uses the CUPS API (bound to Python with pycups) to do this. The communication with the server is performed using IPP. As a result, it is equally able to configure a remote CUPS server as a local one.



Display a short usage message.


Show the named printer on start-up and print a test page to it.


Enable debugging output.
