I would like to create named instances for an Epson printer. We are printing invoices on normal A4, photos on glossy photo paper, and draft papers (with draft quality). E.g. the paper size, margins and print quality changes from time to time.

I have two problems. First, I do not see any way on the CUPS web admin interface to add printer instances. I only have 'set printer options' but it does not allow me to create instances.

The other problem is that lpoptions lists the options, but I do not know their meaning and the possible values. Example:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ lpoptions
media=A4 finishings=3 copies=1 job-hold-until=no-hold job-priority=50 number-up=1 auth-info-required=none job-sheets=none,none printer-info='EPSON Stylus Photo R265' printer-is-accepting-jobs=1 printer-is-shared=1 printer-location printer-make-and-model='Epson Stylus Photo R265 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.2 Simplified' printer-state=5 printer-state-change-time=1227085737 printer-state-reasons=paused printer-type=8556556

Which option is for printing quality? What are its possible values? It depends on the driver, and therefore it is not covered in the CUPS manual. The drivers themselves does not have a documentation. So where can I get this information?
