NAME

paperconfig – configure the system default paper size

SYNOPSIS

paperconfig [ -v,–version ] [ -h,–help ] [ -p, –paper papername |
–force ]

DESCRIPTION

paperconfig sets the system (or default) paper to be used by tools
using the papersize file. It can either ask interactively for the
paper to use or be called non-interactively by scripts.

When the paper size has been changed, paperconfig notifies other pack‐
ages of the change by running the scripts in the /etc/libpaper.d direc‐
tory.

OPTIONS

-v,–version
Print the version of paperconfig and exit.

-h,–help
Print help about usage and exit.

-p, –paper papername
Use papername if possible. If papername is not a valid paper,
print an error message and exit.

–force
Force interactive selection of the system paper even if the
actual paper is a valid one.

ENVIRONMENT
PAPERCONF Full path to a file containing the paper size to use; this
file will be rewritten with the system paper size.

FILES
/etc/papersize Contains the name of the system-wide default paper
size to be used if the PAPERSIZE variable is not
set.

/etc/libpaper.d Directory of scripts to run after the paper size
has been changed. This package puts no scripts
here, but other packages may.
