with LPRng:

        print command = /usr/bin/lpr  -U%U@%m -P%p -r %s


        print command = chmod 666 %s; name="`echo '%J' | sed "s/^.*- //"`"; if [ "$name" = "" ]; then name="%s"; fi; /usr/bin/lpr -U%U@%m -P%p -J"$name" %s; rm %s

and so on:

        lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq  -U%U@%m -P%p
        lprm command = /usr/bin/lprm -U%U@%m -P%p %j
        lppause command = /usr/sbin/lpc -U%U@%m hold %p %j
        lpresume command = /usr/sbin/lpc -U%U@%m release %p %j
        queuepause command = /usr/sbin/lpc -U%U@%m stop %p
        queueresume command = /usr/sbin/lpc -U%U@%m start %p
