#cstm

> Printer - driver name and printer name

There is no printer driver (HP-UX is not a PC). There is a printer script that helps with formatting plain ASCII text. The original script is copied and renamed when a printer is created, and the different scripts so not have any consistent identification method (like a what string). You have to read the beginning of each printer's script but there isn't a lot of useful information. The active scripts are located in /etc/lp/interface and also /etc/lp/interface/model.orig.

To list all the printers:

lpstat -v

(lpstat -t provides more details but is extremely slow when any remote printer is offline or unreachable due to long timeout values (not settable).

Re: printer and memory slot info: using commands

"/opt/hpnpl/bin/addqueue -l" will list the drivers.

"lpstat -a " should list the printers and also /usr/sam/lbin/lpmgr -l"
