awesome tip - how to set as default?
Authored by: chrisrosa on Jan 08, '07 11:08:29AM

Hi...thanks so much for this tip. I still haven't found a way to set the new printer as the user's default. I thought perhaps the lpadmin -d flag would do it, but (at least) the Printer Setup Utility doesn't think the default has changed. Any ideas? Thanks again.

To set a default printer, add the following line to the above script after the lpadmin command:

  # Set Printer as Default
  lpoptions -d "${prName}"
