Not that long ago I was searching for a way to find the printer a job sent to a CUPS class printed to. After poking around on the cups.org forums, Michael Sweet responded with information about the “job-actual-printer-uri” IPP attribute.
The code is something like:
self.cups = cups.Connection()
def getActualPrinter(self, jobid):
job_attributes = self.cups.getJobAttributes(jobid)
Now with the added code, I’ve added physical destination to the CCIS print queue viewer. We have several queues that all point to the same printer (name-simplex, name-duplex, etc all point to name). The same code for identifying destination on print classes also works for these cases.
