     update-updmap [option ...]

DESCRIPTION
     This manual page documents update-updmap, a program that was written for
     the Debian distribution.

   Overview
     update-updmap is used to generate updmap(1)'s and updmap-sys(8)'s config-
     urations files /var/lib/texmf/updmap.cfg-TEXLIVEDIST, which is the link
     target of /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg, and
     /var/lib/texmf/updmap.cfg-DEBIAN which is the link target of
     /usr/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg, from the files with names ending in
     '.cfg' located in /var/lib/tex-common/fontmap-cfg/texlive/ and
     /var/lib/tex-common/fontmap-cfg/texmf/, respectively.

     Any TeX package shipping map files in one of the trees
     /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist or /usr/share/texmf should also provide
     files in one of the above directories containing the respective lines for
     updmap.cfg file.

     In order to configure (enable additional entries, disable system provided
     entries, etc), the normal updmap(1)mechanism should be used. Please see
     the man page details.

OPTIONS
     --check    Executes additional checks that all necessary files are
                present in the kpathsea database. Don't use this in maintainer
                scripts.

     --quiet    don't write anything to the standard output during normal
                operation

     --help     print a summary of the command-line usage of update-updmap and
                exit

     --version  output version information and exit

     Note that the -v option, which turns on verbose mode, is deprecated.  We
     are currently in a transition phase where quiet mode is still the default
     (therefore, --quiet has no effect), but update-updmap will be verbose by
     default as soon as enough packages use --quiet in their maintainer
     scripts.

SYNTAX FOR THE .CFG FILES
     The '.cfg' files under /var/lib/tex-common/fontmap-cfg/ should contain
     valid configuration lines for updmap(1).  Usually, they will consist of
     lines of following one of these forms:

           Map <foo.map>
           MixedMap <bar.map>
           KanjiMap <baz.map>

     The MixedMap form should only be used if the font is available in both
     bitmap and scalable formats (this way, it won't be declared in the

DIAGNOSTICS
     update-updmap returns 0 on success, or a strictly positive integer on
     error.
