How can you print pages from 7 to 17 by lpr?
lpr -P myprinter -o page-ranges=7-17
myprinter is the name of your printer
Masi, the command IS documented on your Ubuntu box, in the online-help for CUPS. Visit
to see what I mean.
man lp has the
-P option for page range:
-P page-list Specifies which pages to print in the document. The list can contain a list of numbers and ranges (#-#) separated by commas, e.g., "1,3-5,16". The page numbers refer to the output pages and not the document's original pages - options like "number-up" can affect the numbering of the pages.
Here is a full command I use often:
lp -P 5-22 -o media=A4 -o number-up=2 -o sides=two-sided-long-edge -o fit-to-page R-ints.pdf
