Printer command

Specifies the command that is used to submit jobs to the printer. The command must not contain symbols, but it can contain command options with hard-coded values. For example, this command prints a job on the PCLOut printer with an IP address of printer_IP_address and a print queue of PASS and assigns it to class A:

lpr -P PASS -S printer_IP_address -C A

The file name is added to the end of the command, so the command must expect the file name to be at the end. For example, when you print a file called myfile.afp, the command in the example becomes:

lpr -P PASS -S printer_IP_address -C A myfile.afp

Database name


Usage notes:

  • This property applies only to PCLOut printers.
  • Different printer commands use different options. For example, the printer flag of the Linux lpr command is upper case -P with an optional space between the flag and the print queue; while the printer flag of the lprafp command is lower case -p without a space between the flag and the print queue.
  • PCLOut printers do not support Ricoh ProcessDirector symbols such as ${Job.Name} in the PCLOut printer command.
