I got this from a previous posting and added it to my post-install
jumpstart scripts. Our developers would*the filters up, so I
combined that with the original...
# Create the default network printer
# Stolen from postings on usenet
# Add filters as needed if Developers*up again
lpadmin -p printername -v /dev/null -m netstandard
lpadmin -p printername -o protocol=bsd -o dest=x.x.x.x
lpadmin -p printername -T PS -I postscript
lpadmin -d printername
if [ ! -d /usr/lib/lp/postscript/download ]; then
lpfilter -f download -F download.fd
lpfilter -f dpost -F dpost.fd
lpfilter -f postio -F postio.fd
lpfilter -f postior -F postior.fd
lpfilter -f postprint -F postprint.fd
lpfilter -f postreverse -F postreverse.fd
Feel free to add or modify, but if you have any goodies to ad/fix, post
them for me and others...
