DESCRIPTION

defoma-app is a tool to configure the fonts registered in Defoma, Debian Font Manager, for a specific application. Defoma calls the Defoma-configuration script of the specified application with register or unregister command for each of the fonts registered in the categories accepted by the application. It is supposed to be invoked from postinst/prerm scripts of application packages, but may be invoked from console.

application specifies the name of the application that is going to be configured. The specified application must have application-name.defoma perl script under /usr/share/defoma/scripts. If category is specified, only the fonts in the specified categories get processed. Otherwise all the fonts in all the categories accepted by the application get processed.  

COMMANDS

update
Update the configuration of the specified application about the fonts registered in the specified category. category can be omitted. When it is specified and the specified category is set ignored (to be mentioned later), ignore flag gets unset so the category gets updated. Internally the Defoma-configuration script of the application gets called with unregister command first and then with register command for each font of the category. Some directories and symlinks specified in the header of the script might be generated automatically.
This command should be invoked when the Defoma-configuration script is newly installed or updated so that the script gets installed to Defoma data directory and the fonts get configured to the application. It means it is supposed to be invoked on the postinst configure phase.
clean
Clean up the configuration of the specified application about the fonts registered in the specified category. category can be omitted. Internally the Defoma-configuration script of the application gets called with unregister command for each font of the category.
purge
This command is almost the same as clean command. It only differs on removing the script installed in the defoma data directory and some directories and symlinks if any was generated in the update command before.
This command should be invoked when the Defoma-configuration script is going to be removed so that the script gets removed and the font configuration gets cleaned. It means it is supposed to be invoked on the prerm remove phase.
ignore
This command makes the specified application not use the fonts registered in the specified category. It removes the fonts in the category out of the font configuration and sets the `ignore' flag against the category in order to make the Defoma-configuration script of the application not accept fonts in the category. If category is omitted, all categories gets ignored. To unset the `ignore' flag, run defoma-app with update command and the category against which you want to unset the flag.
