raw queue with usb printer (-v option in lpadmin command)


Hello!

here is a silly newbie question:

I want to set up a print queue (raw) on a linux box (rh9) to print at a printer connected to the usb port.

For a parallel printer I'd issue the following commnad:

lpadmin -p hplj5mp -v parallel:/dev/lp0 -E

The question is what I must put after the -v for a usb printer.

Any help will be most appreciate.

What does

lpinfo -v

say?
good luck.
