Newbie needs help with home work


I am just learning linux actually I am still in school. But I need some help with a question on my homework. just want to know if I am even close and what mistakes I made.
Using the command line tool, how would you add the following to print to CUPS?

1. Model Wizbang 9000:lpadmin -p Wizbang 9000 -c -m -e

2. PPD file Wizbang_9000_ps.ppd.gz (already in the foomatic database):lpadmin -p "Wizbang 9000" -E -v -m Wizbang_9000_ps.ppd.gz



3. Connected to a JetDirect print server with an IP of 172.20.20.76: lpadmin -p "JetDirect" -E -v socket://172.20.20.76 -m


4. Accessible to all users:lpadmin -p printer -u allow:all

All feedback is welcomed thanks in advance

How about you first give it a try, post the code from your attempts here and then we can talk about it. You can't seriously expect people to do your homework for you.

Hello Fwill, welcome to LQ,

you're posting from a Windows-computer. Don't you have a Linux-computer? you'd be better off to install Linux (dualboot or in a virtual machine) and try the commands by yourself.

Some web sites are funny about home-work.

LQ does not do the home-work thing.It is against forum rules. So the route to go is probably to ask about an overveiw or something. Going though the material in a algorithmic way only benefits you if you do it yourself. LQ is very prolific but no home-work section. It's not their bag but other sites actually have these forums. Do a web search of Unix and Linux (forums) and the most obvious links are your best bet to find (home-work) threads. Edit: scratch the Linux search and just do the Unix search.Another edit: I really did not mean "funny ha ha". LQ has mostly a zero tolerance for home-work questions so if it even reassembles it or is close to a hm question , it is out of bounds. I think it adds a lot more overhead for the moderators and in principle LQ does not agree with it either. Good luck with your class!

I did post the code that I came up with that's why it's the entire question with a code and I ask for feed back to see if I made a mistake some where or if I was on the right path I don't need you to do my homework for me just need to know if I am doing it right.
