Print Command Options

You can use the Print Command Options text field in the Print dialog box to set other print options. Type the proper lp command flag in the text field for the print option you want to use. To see a list of the lp command flags, type man lp in a Terminal window.

For example, one of the lp flags is -m. This flag tells the print server to send you a mail message that tells you when it is done printing your document. To use this flag you would type -m in the Print Command Options field of the Print dialog box. Then when your document is done printing, a message appears in your mailbox from the printer.
