8.2.2 Checking on Available Printers

To find out which printers are configured on your system, type the following:

$ lpstat -s

The status of the scheduler is displayed followed by the default destination and a list of the systems and printers that are available to you.

In the following example, on the system elm, the scheduler is running, the default printer is pinecone, and two network printers, pinecone and acorn, are available:

$ lpstat -s
scheduler is running
system default destination: pinecone
system for pinecone: pine
system for acorn: oak
