A user can set his own default options for a specific CUPS printer by issuing the command:
# lpoptions -p printer -o option1=value -o option2=value Remove print options

Previously defined print options can be removed from ~/.lpoptions by:

To list print queue’s current options:
# lpoptions -p printer

To list print queue’s current options:
# lpoptions -p printer -l Create sets of options - Printer Instances

A very useful CUPS feature is that sets of options can be defined. These can be system-wide if they are set by root, or user specific if they are set by a user. Printer instances are extra options for a specific printer that are saved as an extra printer in the form printer/set. This virtual printer’s settings override the default options.

To create a printer instance, as a user issue the command:
# lpoptions -p printer/set1 -o option1=value -o option2=value

To delete a printer instance issue the command:
# lpoptions -x printer/set1

The printer instance is listed as a printer in lpstat. The user can send a document to the printer instance:
# lpr -P printer/set1 filename
