Description Dax Kelson 2003-04-01 02:19:10 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently if one wants to use PPD files with CUPS, one must use the lpadmin
command. It would be really nice if redhat-config-printer allowed the use of PPDs.

The end results of using PPDs is the ability to configure printer specific
options on a per print job basis, see:
