Commands Directomatic will print from standard input unless a file to print is specified on the command line. If your printer definition file is in /etc/foomatic/direct or ~/.foomatic/direct you do not need to specify its path. Put a (instructions in the file) to redirect the output of directomatic to your printer instead of standard output.
