Bug#610928: Backward compatibility script needed for HP PPD upgrade
The Debian packages of HPLIP (hplip, hplip-cups, hpijs, and hpijs-ppds)
should generally update the PPDs of the existing print queues to the
current packages version in the post-install scripts. Can you attach the
PPD(s) which did not get updated automatically to this bug report? Thanks.

On upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze a number of our printer queues

The upgrade also reset the default paper size to weird values on a
bunch of other HP printers. I found this info on the redhat bugzilla:
I grabbed a copy of hpijs-3.10.9-1.fc12.x86_64.rpm, extracted the
hpcups-update-ppds script and ran it. This fixed all the issues caused
by the upgrade. Debian should have something like this for Squeeze.
