NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     modelinfo - generate formatted list of supported printers

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     modelinfo -u

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This command is used by the Printer Manager and other utilities
     (mkcentpr(1m), mknetpr(1m), mkserialpr(1M)) to build a list of supported

     When modelinfo is first run it creates the	file
     /var/spool/lp/modelinfo.dat which contains	the modelinfo output.  The
     contents of this file are also printed to standard	out.  The directories
     /var/spool/lp/model and /var/spool/lp/PPD_model are searched to determine
     supported printers.  (/var/spool/lp/PPD_model will	only exist if the
     Impressario PPD driver has	been installed.)

     If	any file in the	searched directories is	newer then the existing
     modelinfo.dat file	then the modelinfo.dat file is rebuilt;	otherwise, the
     modelinfo.dat is simply written to	standard output	when modelinfo is run.

     The -u option can be used to force	the modelinfo.dat file to be updated.

     You must be root to run modelinfo.

     modelinfo creates the lock	file /var/spool/lp/modelinfo.dat.lck lock file
     while it updates the /var/spool/lp/modelinfo.dat file.

     modelinfo is not intended for general use.	 To install an Impressario
     printer use the Printer Manager tool or the mkcentpr(1M), mknetpr(1M),
 shell scripts.
