Question How to enable multiple printers at once


Hello everyone.

I am running RHEL 6.3 and have a bunch of printers that I've intentionally disabled on a server. I need to be able to enable them all at once. Any guidance on how I might be able to do that, possibly a script?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

If assuming the server is running cups then look at the cupsenable command.
