SYNOPSIS

cups-genppd [-c localedir] [-l locale] [-p prefix] [-q] [-v] model1 [model2, ...modeln]
cups-genppd -L [-c localedir]
cups-genppd -M [-v]
cups-genppd -h
cups-genppd -V

DESCRIPTION

cups-genppd generates Gutenprint PPD files for use with CUPS. The default behavior is to output PPD files for all models of printer that the Gutenprint printer driver library supports. You may restrict the models by listing either the driver names or the full names of the printers you wish to generate PPD files for after any options. Additionally, the PPD files may be localised, that is, translated, to use your native language rather than US English. There are commands to find out what printer models and languages are supported.

EXAMPLES

cups-genppd -v bjc-6200 ’Epson Stylus Photo 1280’ ’HP DeskJet 850C’
  verbosely generate three PPD files, listing the driver name in the first case, and the full name in the second.
LANG=de_DE genppd -p ppd -c /usr/share/locale
  generate PPDs for all available models, in directory ppd using the locale data found under /usr/share/locale. The language to use is taken from the environment (de_DE).
cups-genppd -L -c /usr/local/share/locale
  list available languages using the locale data found under /usr/local/share/locale.
cups-genppd -M -v
  list available drivers, with long model descriptions

COMMANDS

-h show a help message
-L list available translations (message catalogs). If a locale is used for which there is not a corresponding translation, then then US English will be used.
-M list available printer models. By default, only driver names are listed; if verbose mode is used, the full model name will also be printed
-V show version information and defaults
The default behavior is to output PPDs if no command is given.

OPTIONS

-c localedir
  use localedir as the base directory for locale data
-l locale
  output PPDs translated with messages for locale. Note that locale must be a locale as shown by locale -a. For example, the de translation is used by the de_DE locale; de alone will not work.
-p prefix
  output PPDs in directory prefix. Directories are not recursively created.
-q Quiet mode.
-v Verbose mode.
models a list of printer models, either the driver or quoted full name.
