       cups-genppdupdate - update CUPS+Gutenprint PPD files


       cups-genppdupdate  [-h] [-n] [-N] [-q | -v] [-s ppd-directory] [-s output-directory] [PPD-
       FILES or QUEUES...]


       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.

       If  no  files  or  queue names are specified, cups-genppdupdate updates all Gutenprint PPD
       files in /etc/cups/ppd.  Otherwise, cups-genppdupdate updates all files or  queues  listed
       on the command line.

       cups-genppdupdate  does  not update Foomatic PPD files or PPD files from Gimp-Print 4.2 or

       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 be replaced.

       -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.

       -s ppd-directory
              Use  ppd-directory  as  the base directory to read PPD files from.  By default, the
              base directory is /usr/share/cups/model/gutenprint.  Under this directory, the  PPD
              files are located in subdirectories according to language code and territory.

       -o output-directory
              Place  updated  PPD files in output-directory.  By default, this is the same as the
              input directory.

       -N     Reset all options to their defaults (do not merge  options  from  the  current  PPD
