    r2046 r2047  
    2020    destination for the LPR syslog facility.

     22  * How can I limit my users to N pages per day (month/year) ? 
     23   
     24    The easiest way to do this is to create their print quota 
     25    entries using something like : 
     26         
     27      $ edpykota --add -S 30 -H 30 user1 user2 user3 ... 
     28         
     29      this would limit users to 30 pages on each printer. 
     30         
     31    Then in a crontab launched every day (month/year) you could     
     32    do : 
     33     
     34      00 23 * * * /usr/bin/edpykota --reset  
     35         
     36      this would reset every user's page counter to 0 on each printer 
     37      at 23h00 every day.  
     38   
     39  * How can I tell PyKota to allow some users to print without limitation ? 
     40    
     41    Just create these users' print quota entries this way : 
     42     
     43      $ edpykota --add --limitby quota --noquota user1 user2 ... 
     44   
     45      This would effectively put these users in "no limit" mode on 
     46      each printer. If you want to do this only on some printers, just 
     47      use the --printer command line argument as well. See 
     48      edpykota's documentation for details. 
     49   
    2250  * Nothing prints when my printer is in PowerSave mode, what 
    2351    can I do ? 
     52     
    2453    This happens if you use hardware accounting with SNMP, because 
    2554    some (all ?) printers don't say they are idle when they are
