NAME

gpr - a graphical frontend for lpr.

 

SYNOPSIS

gpr [-h] [--help] [-P <printer>] [-J <job name>] [-r] [-n] [-p <flag>] [filename]...

 

DESCRIPTION

gpr is a graphical interface to lpr that provides for easy configuration of printer-specific options. gpr interfaces with a PostScript printer's PPD file to create a user-interface of configurable options. Based upon user choice, the device-specific option code is then inserted into the PostScript job and sent to the printer. This can be used to tell the printer to duplex or staple the print job, or tell it what paper tray to draw paper from. NOTE: gpr will detect if the file to be print is postscript, and, if not, it will call a2ps to preprocess it before sending it to ppdfilt and to lpr.

 

OPTIONS

gpr accepts the following options:

-h, --help

-n
