NAME
foomatic-configure - the main configuration program of the foomatic printing system.
SYNOPSIS
foomatic-configure [OPTION]... foomatic-configure -n queuename [ -N description ] [ -L location ] [ -c con- nect ] [ -d driver ] [ -p printer ] [ -s spooler ] [ -C [ sourcespooler ] source- queue ] [ -o option1=value1 -o option2 ... ] [ -q ] [ --oldppd ] foomatic-configure -D -n queue- name [ -s spooler ] [ -q ] foomatic-configure -R -n queuename [ -s spooler ] [ -q ] foomatic-configure -Q [ -s spooler ] [ -n queuename ] [ -r ] foomatic-configure -P [ -s spooler ] [ -n queuename ] [ index ] foomatic-configure -X -p printer | -d driver | -p printer -d driver foomatic-configure -O foomatic-configure -h foomatic-configure --help
DESCRIPTION
foomatic-configure is a program to establish and configure print queues, drivers, spoolers, etc using the foomatic database and companion filters. It also comprises half of a programatic API for user tools: you can learn and control everything about the static properties of print queues here. With the sister program foomatic-printjob, you can do everything related to print queue dynamic state: submit jobs, and query, cancel, reorder, and redirect them. Options -n queuename Configure this print queue -N Name/Description Use this proper human-readable name/description -L Location Short phrase describing this printer's location -c connection Printer is connected thusly (ex file:/dev/lp0) -d driver Foomatic database name for desired printer driver -p printer Foomatic id for printer -s spooler Explicit spooler type (cups, lpd, lprng, pdq, ppr, direct) -o option=value Set the default of option to value -o option Turn on option by default --oldppd Use the old CUPS-O-Matic PPD files for CUPS queues (default are the PPD-O-Matic PPDs) -D Set this queue as the default queue (just give -n queuename) -R Remove this whole queue entirely (just give -n queuename) -C [ sourcespooler ] sourcequeue Copy sourcequeue from sourcespooler (or the current one if sourcespooler is not given) into the queue given by -n queuename (of the current spooler). -Q Query existing configuration (gives XML summary) -r List also remotely defined queues (CUPS only) -P [ index ] Get Perl dump of current configuration (as a Perl array named QUEUES, the first index is index, or zero if index is not given) -O Print XML Overview of all known printer/drivers (this shows also the Foomatic IDs of the printers) -X Print XML data for -p printer and/or -d driver object -q Run quietly Commands No commands, just options

BUGS
foomatic-configure currently cannot handle printcap files in the lprng style. As lprng can use BSD style printcaps this is not much of a problem, as long as the GUI based print manager lprngtool is not used. The difference between those formats is, that BSD style requires continuation lines in printer definitions to be ended with a colon and the newline character to be escaped with a backslash. Lprng has no such restriction. To use a printcap file generated or edited with lprngtool with foomatic-configure it is necessary to add :\ to the end of all but the last line of every printer definition, just as shown below: #comment # primary printer name lp #alternate names |lp2|lp3 |Example of a printer :sd=/usr/spool/LPD/lp :rw:lp=/dev/lp:mx#100 : must be converted to: #comment # primary printer name lp\ |lp2|lp3\ |Example of a printer\ :sd=/usr/spool/LPD/lp:\ :rw:lp=/dev/lp:mx#100: This manpage may be out of date.
