Imported a PCL5 PPD file (foomatic-ppd file) from printer configuration tool.

name), and it says file imported.
Try to add PCL5 printer, but PCL5 PPD is not in the list. There's no way to
use the PCL5 PPD file (except using cups webui)

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
The whole business about needing to import PPDs into foomatic before they can be
used is gone in rawhide.
Yes, verified the functionality of creating print queue with customized PPD
files in FC6 test 1.
This bug should stay as closed.
