gtk2's cups printbackend does not provide a commandline like gtk2's lpr

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information


gtk2's lpr printerbackend provides a commandline useful for testing, using uncommon options or printing to available but unconfigured printers.

e.g. user configured printers close to his office, but needs to print once to a printer in a different building.
lpr -PFar_away_printer
could do this, but this is not available in e.g. Firefox printing dialog when the cups printbackend is active. The cups printerbackend lacks this functionality and the lpr backend is said to go away.
