I have a printer set up using CUPS (FujiXerox Document Center 1100), it is named DC1100.

There are capabilities of the printer that are not shows as options of the printer as listed by:

lpoptions -l -d DC1100

The output is below:

I am particularly looking for options for:

  • "secure print" (possibly by setting a mode and setting a username)
