fcprinter uses a simple and home-brewn approach to install the necessary files. Everything is done by invoking make targets in the toplevel Makefile. The various installation steps assume certain destination directories and other settings which should match most Unix platforms.

The following list shows the available make targets and how to invoke them. It is assumed that all calls are done with the required privileges. So you might need to prepend sudo to every command or run as root.
fcprinter uses Apache FOP to render the PDF files. Unfortunately this framework is not part of many distributions, at least not in a sufficently modern version. So you can download the most recent version as of writing this handbook from the fcprinter site. The installation itself works the same way as above:
