Many free PPDs are available at

Kyocera drivers. Perhaps all of these should be put in a package, such

There are already many ppd collections:


and others. Probably we need to define a policy issue about where those

different directories.

Yes, this is very important. We would have all the drivers in the same directory ( or a path to the cups-ppd-drivers in a general printing configuration file).
