The way I have configured CUPS on my workstation is by

echo 'CUPS_SERVER=cups.example.com' >> ~/.profile
echo 'export CUPS_SERVER' >> ~/.profile

When I open the print menu in any program I see ~50 CUPS printers, where I am only interested in 2-3 of them.


Is it possible to only show those 2-3 printers I am interested in?

    How would you like to filter? By user? By group? By IP subnet? By location? – ewwhite Aug 30 '13 at 18:50
  • Ideally by name. IP subnet might also work. – Sandra Schlichting Aug 30 '13 at 20:14
