The easiest way to get the job ID when printing is to execute the lp command from the command line, such as

lp -d display temp.ps

The system then writes on the terminal:

Job-ID is display–2189 (1 file(s))

(display in this example is the name of a print queue that displays the print result in a screen window).

The number, in this example, 2189, is the argument to pass to the script.
