Summary: PPD files from
To set up a printer configuration a printer description file
(PPD file) is required.

A printer description file is not a driver.

For non-PostScript printers a driver is needed
together with a PPD file which matches exactly
to the particular driver.

For PostScript printers, a PPD file alone is sufficient
(except for older PostScript level 1 printer models).

The PPD files are provided in the following sub-packages
depending on which kind of driver software is needed:

OpenPrintingPPDs-ghostscript provides PPDs
which use Ghostscript built-in drivers.

OpenPrintingPPDs-hpijs provides PPDs
which use the hpijs driver from HPLIP.

OpenPrintingPPDs-postscript provides PPDs
which need no driver.

* Tue May 08 2012
  - Do not provide PPDs for the Ghostscript driver "lx5000" because
    the driver is removed from the default build in Ghostscript,
    see the "Built-in drivers for old Lexmark printers" mail thread
    on dated June 2011 (bnc#760684).
* Sat Sep 17 2011
  - Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile.
  - Pick stronger compression.
* Wed Jan 12 2011
  - Enhanced the sources by verbatim documentation and references
    and install the GPLv2 as plain text file.
* Tue Dec 28 2010
  - Do not install the "Generic GDI Printer" PPD because
    there is no such thing as a "Generic GDI Printer",
* Wed Oct 20 2010
  - Skip fixing bugs in PPD files from printer manufacturers when
    the manufacturer's redistribution license in the PPD file allows
    redistribution only when the content of the file is not altered
* Wed Oct 13 2010
  - Updated NEC-P2X.necp2xX.upp.ppd for OpenPrintingPPDs-ghostscript
    so that now all PPDs in the OpenPrintingPPDs packages
    pass the very basic test with the makePPDtest script
    which is added to the OpenPrintingPPDs source tarball.
* Fri Oct 01 2010
  - Initial version.
