SYNOPSISfoomatic-kitload [ -k kit-dir] [ -d dest-dir]...
DESCRIPTIONfoomatic-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 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.
dirname is the toplevel directory of a foomatic driver "kit".
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
