Summary: PPD files from OpenPrinting.org
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.

Changelog

* Tue May 08 2012 jsmeix@suse.de
  - 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 gs-devel@ghostscript.com dated June 2011 (bnc#760684).
* Sat Sep 17 2011 jengelh@medozas.de
  - Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile.
  - Pick stronger compression.
* Wed Jan 12 2011 jsmeix@suse.de
  - Enhanced the sources by verbatim documentation and references
    and install the GPLv2 as plain text file.
* Tue Dec 28 2010 jsmeix@suse.de
  - Do not install the "Generic GDI Printer" PPD because
    there is no such thing as a "Generic GDI Printer",
    (see http://www.cups.org/str.php?L3759).
* Wed Oct 20 2010 jsmeix@suse.de
  - 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
    (see http://bugs.linux-foundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=535).
* Wed Oct 13 2010 jsmeix@suse.de
  - Updated NEC-P2X.necp2xX.upp.ppd for OpenPrintingPPDs-ghostscript
    (see http://bugs.linux-foundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=533)
    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 jsmeix@suse.de
  - Initial version.
