ppdmgr - PPD-Files and OpenSolaris

| | TrackBacks (0)
The OpenSolaris default print system is "foomatic" (starting with build 107, you can use CUPS together with the graphical print manager program as well).

"foomatic" accepts PPD files to definer printers' capabilities and needed PostScript code to be sent with each print request.

So whenever you buy a new PostScript printer (or you are using a network printing service like Canon's JobTicket) you have to "install" a new PPD (PostScript Printer Description) file - it will then show up in the Printer Manager properties window.
