When a user sends a file to the printer without specifying a priority level, the print service assigns the system-wide default priority level (initially 20) to the print job.
To change the default priority level, enter:
/usr/sbin/lpusers -d priority_level
The priority_level is a value between 0 (highest priority) and 39 (lowest priority).
For example, if you change the default priority level to 30, then list the priority information with /usr/sbin/lpusers -l, you see:
Default priority: 30 Priority limit for users not listed below: 0 Priority UsersDo not confuse the default priority level with the ``default priority limit''; the default priority limit prevents users who have not been assigned a personal limit from requesting too high a priority. See ``Setting individual and default priority limits''.
