cups-genppdupdate - update CUPS+Gutenprint PPD files
cups-genppdupdate [-h] [-n] [-q | -v] [-s ppd-directory]
cups-genppdupdate regenerates the Gutenprint PPD files in use by CUPS,
using the PPD files under /usr/share/cups/model/gutenprint as
templates. The new PPD file replaces the old PPD file under
/etc/cups/ppd, but all the options set in the old PPD will be merged
into the new PPD, provided that they are still valid in the new file.
cups-genppdupdate does not restart cupsd. cupsd will need manually
reloading (or send SIGHUP) once cups-genppdupdate has completed.
-h Show a help message.
-n No action. The program will run, but the old PPD files will not
-q Quiet mode. No messages will be issued, apart from errors.
-v Verbose mode. More informative messages will be issued. Note
that extremely verbose output may be turned on by setting
$debug=1 in the source, but this output will not be of use to
the average user.
Use ppd-directory as the base directory to read PPD files from.
By default, the base directory is /usr/share/ppd/gutenprint.
Under this directory, the PPD files are located in
subdirectories according to language code and territory.
