I use cupsomatic-ppd, rather than foomatic-db, and that works great for me. Your mileage may vary.I was under the impression that one could simply install foomatic and then CUPS would then be able to present the available printers and drivers to the user. CUPS would then call foomatic-configure on behalf of the user to automatically put together a ppd file. This isn't thecase.
