[[ where 'backend' is the program name, eg 'canon-selphy_print' ]]
Some backends may support additional arguments; see below:
NOTE: The 'filename' here refers to the raw spool data generated by
Gutenprint (eg via its gimp plugin) or the Windows print-to-file
output.
NOTE2: If there is more than one device present that the backend handles,
the backend will choose the first supported device it finds. If you
wish to specify the specific device when operating in standalone
mode, set the 'DEVICE' environment variable to the target device's
serial number. For example:
If there is more than one device present that the backend handles,
the backend will choose the first supported device it finds. If you
wish to specify the specific device when operating in standalone
mode, set the 'DEVICE' environment variable to the target device's
serial number. For example:
DEVICE=N782 backend filename
All backends support this syntax.
All backends support an additional operational mode, to test out
unknown models. To use this mode, specify the VID, PID and its
type as environment variables. For example:
EXTRA_VID=04a9 EXTRA_PID=3ab1 EXTRA_TYPE=3 backend filename
EXTRA_VID is the USB VID, in hex
EXTRA_PID is the USB PID, in hex
EXTRA_TYPE is: 3 for SELPHY CP790
4 for SELPHY CP520 (or other CP-series model)
If you have a model the spooler doesn't recognize but it works with
a VID/PID/TYPE specification, please let me know via e-mail.
Finally, some backends may support additional arguments; see below:

** Note that a PID can be supplied on the command line, see below.
Once the PIDs are known, these printers are expected to work.
