Description Tim Waugh 2007-01-08 09:51:36 EST
Description of problem:
If the appropriate PPD for a printer comes from the CUPS list of named PPDs,
hal_lpadmin fails to add it correctly.  Instead it might get a general PCL PPD
or something like that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put a foomatic-generated PPD in /usr/share/cups/models and sabotage the
corresponding foomatic XML.
2.Plug in printer.

Actual results:
General PCL driver used.

Expected results:
Correct CUPS PPD used.
