|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.

* Tue May 08 2012 email@example.com - 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 firstname.lastname@example.org dated June 2011 (bnc#760684). * Sat Sep 17 2011 email@example.com - Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile. - Pick stronger compression. * Wed Jan 12 2011 firstname.lastname@example.org - Enhanced the sources by verbatim documentation and references and install the GPLv2 as plain text file. * Tue Dec 28 2010 email@example.com - 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 firstname.lastname@example.org - 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 email@example.com - 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 firstname.lastname@example.org - Initial version.
