Someone can explain me how to use the tpsetup or tpconfig command to add a new printer in a script. I read the txt file but it's not very clear.

the commands "tpsetup" and "tpconfig" are for interactive use, not for scripts. You can use the cups "lpadmin" command also to add TurboPrint printers.

Maybe I can point you in the correct direction if I know more about your intention - why do you want to add a new printer in a script?

I want to create a script to setup all things (printer, desktop, softwares, ...) in my computer after the installation of my Ubuntu. So I put in my script :
- the installation of turboprint
- the use of tpsetup to add the key
- use sed to configure the file /etc/turboprint/system.cfg

Now I want to add the configuration of printers.
