I have 2 physical printers, a bottom of the line B&W laser that manages
to do utility print jobs at 19 ppm, and a huge ink squirter with more
bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at.
To do all of the job profiles this Brother MFC-J6920DW is capable of,
because among the various paper sizes it can handle is borderless
tabloid, aka 11x17. Its scanner can also handle that size when the doc
feeder is lifted and its laid directly on the glass, but that is not
germain to this problem.
Do adequately describe the various jobs it can do, by selecting
the "printer" to send this job to, would need at least 8, individual
profiles setup in the cups menu's at localhost:631/printers.
I have discussed this with Micheal Sweet, whom I've known longer than
linux has existed, and he assures me there is no such limit in cups,
never has been. Ever.
So where is this limit, so that I can raise it to a dozen or so, and get
on with what I want to do?
Cheers, Gene Heskett
