NAME

foomatic-compiledb − Compile the Foomatic printer/driver database

SYNOPSIS

foomatic-compiledb [ −t type ] [ −f ] [ −j ] [  driver ...  ]

DESCRIPTION

foomatic-compiledb generates all PPD files or Foomatic combo XML files for all possible printer/driver combos, or only for a selected range of drivers. It generally should not be necessary except for people who want to generate a set of Foomatic data files for distribution. For configuring single printers foomatic-ppdfile(1) and especially foomatic-configure(1) will automagically compute just what they need.

Options

−t type

Output file type, either ppd or xml.

−f

Force: Write into the destination directory even if it already exists.

−j n

n = number of work processes to run

driver ...

only generate data files for these driver(s)

SEE ALSO

foomatic-ppdfile(1),foomatic-configure(1)

EXIT STATUS

foomatic-compiledb returns 0 unless something unexpected happens.

AUTHORS

Manfred Wassmann <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de> and Till Kamppeter <till.kamppeter@gmail.com> for the foomatic project using output from the associated binary.

BUGS

Existing files are always conserved instead of older files being overwritten. So deleting the destination directory (rm −rf dir) and calling foomatic-compiledb without the −f option is recommended.
