I did not know that! But it is not clear in the docs. CUPS talks about
"printers" and "printer instances". They recommend using lpoptions to
create instances, and use them. Moreover, "printer instances" the way
they are created with lpoptions are NOT available from the gtk print
All right, I'm going to try to add more printers for the same USB
device. I hope it will work.
