Description for the UCI configuration file /etc/config/p910nd.

For installations instructions and more see: p910nd.server. You can run more than one printer at the same time by adding additional sections.

The default configuration is (list all configured printers):

uci show p910nd

Option Type Default Description
enabled boolean 0 1: Enable the printer; 0: Disable the printer
device device path /dev/usb/lp0 The device your printer is connected to (e.g. /dev/usb/lp0, /dev/printers/0 for LPT under Linux 2.4; /dev/lp0 for USB under Linux 2.6)
