(:title How do I change the temporary location used by PaperCut to store spool files in CUPS:)

By default, PaperCut will store print job information, not limited to the spool file, in /tmp.

In some situations it may be desirable to change this to another location, e.g. different physical disks. We do not recommend that this is changed to a Network location such as a SMB/CFS/NFS/AFP share as network resources latencies and throughput are significantly higher than disk based resources.

To change the location used, modify the [@[app-path]\providers\print\linux-[arch]\print-provider.conf@] and add a configuration option [@TmpCupsSpoolDir@]

eg:

-> [@TmpCupsSpoolDir=/papercutspool/@]
