PAPERCONFIG(8) Linux Administrator's Manual PAPERCONFIG(8)

paperconfig - configure the system default paper size

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

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 packages of the change by running the scripts in the /etc/libpaper.d directory.

-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.

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

/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. run-parts is used to run the scripts, therefore their names must comply with run-part's naming requirements.
