OpenPrinting printer support - PostScript PPD files

This package includes a collection of free PostScript Printer Description files for PostScript (and clone) printers from various manufacturers, as distributed by OpenPrinting.

If you have non-PostScript printers, the foomatic-db, foomatic-db-engine, hplip, gutenprint or splix packages are the ones you need; this package won't be of much help to you.

Some manufacturers distribute PPD files for their printers under non-free licenses; those are not included in this package, but may be available from the manufacturer's website, included on a CD or other media with the printer, or downloadable from the OpenPrinting web site (even automatically if the printer setup tool supports it).
