Yes I have. I've selected the 710c's ppd in Gimp.

Selected the "PostScript Level 2" and the right PPD file.
Quote from http://www.linuxprinting.org/ppd-doc.html :
"After closing the dialog with "OK" the fields for the options ("Media Size",
"Media Source", ...) will contain the choices according to your printer."
But unfortunately there is an empty space and no "Media Source" or any fields.
If I select any printer model/vendor from the list offered by gimp, those
fields are present, but not with a user-defined PPD file.
