    Hello all, ;-)

    I do have two questions :

    1. Does anyone know how to use printer handler from shell especially if it comes to
    use arguments (CUPS compatible option set) ?

    This is how it is shown in the library :

    copy FROM RAM:example.ps TO "PRINTER:profile='HP Color 6' ARGS=' ' COPIES=1 FORMAT=PS"

    To explain further : When Iam sending a ps file with this command to my printer it does print it fine. However, when I want to use arguments in the ARGS=' ... ' part e.g. to enable duplex or declaring a range etc. I dont know the exact method, because its not explained in library detailed. I tried several lp arguments from CUPS but it doesnt work.

    Is there a guide for this (CUPS compatible option set) anywhere or some good examples ?

    2. The COPIES=n part seems not to work too. The ps file is always printed only 1 time regardless
    of the number I enter there. How can that be ?

    Thanks to you all for helping ... :-)
