FOOMATIC-KITLOAD(8)       (2001-05-07)        FOOMATIC-KITLOAD(8)

     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 destina-
                    tion.

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