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


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


       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.

       -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.


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