Some ppds shipped with the package worked (LaserJet and DeskJet mainly)
but I had to use the web interface at first time. After generating
the /etc/cups/printers.conf I copied-and-pasted the relevant entries
in this file and created more printers this way (and copied some
other ppds which were shiped with some more specialized printers).
I did not found a way to add local ppds with the web frontend and
lpadmin failed all the time :-(.
