Description of problem:
When choosing a driver, some PPDs (notably the Gimp-Print PPDs from
gimp-print-cups) do not have descriptive names. The NickName (provided in the
CUPS_GET_PPDS response) should be shown in the PPD information box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gimp-print-cups
2. Create new printer, 'HP', 'LaserJet 4L + CUPS/Gimp-Print v4.2.7'
3. Click on the PPD button
Non-descriptive PPD names, and 'provided by CUPS' in the box.
'Provided by Gimp-Print v4.2.7' in the box.
The 'CUPS/Gimp-Print v4.2.7' text will disappear in 0.7.35.
