Manual Section... (8) - page: foomatic-kitload

 

NAME

foomatic-kitload - installs a data kit into the foomatic database.  

SYNOPSIS

foomatic-kitload [ -k kit-dir] [ -d dest-dir]...  

DESCRIPTION

foomatic-kitload installs a foomatic data kit into the local data library. It takes a -k dirname option, where dirname is the toplevel directory of a foomatic driver "kit". A "kit" is a selection of XML source files arranged exactly as in the source/section of the master database (ie, opt/driver/printer/ subdirs).

Gimp-Print's foomatic-generator produces exactly such a kit.

Foomatic-kitload is moderately paranoid about kits: the kit must contain at least one of printer, driver or opt; the kit must contain only files ending in .xml, the kit cannot be the local library itself, etc. But it does not inspect the contents of the kit files in any way.

 

Options

-k dirname
dirname is the toplevel directory of a foomatic driver "kit".
-d destdir
destdir is a prefix to prepend to the install path. This will not normally be required, but is useful if installing into a temporary `staging area' prior to installing in the final destination.

 

EXIT STATUS

foomatic-kitload returns 0 on success, 255 or something else when an error occurs.
