FOOMATIC-KITLOAD(8)	    System Manager's Manual	   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 li-
       brary.  It takes	a -k dirname option, where dirname is the toplevel di-
       rectory	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 con-
       tain 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.

AUTHOR
       Manfred	Wassmann  <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de>  for	the   foomatic
       project using output from the associated	binary.
