PPD File System Specification
There are several packages in Debian that provide PostScript Printer
Descriptions (PPDs) for PostScript and non-PostScript printers.
It would be nice if these packages could cooperate more to form a single
database of PPDs. This would allow GUI tools like gnome-cups-add,
foomatic-gui, ... to provide users a printer model list for adding printers.
Therefore I wrote the PPD File System Specification aimed to solve this
The specification is located at
Any comments and suggestions to this Specification are welcome.
