Sub_title: SOLVED

I Have an Apollo P-1200 printer but this model is not listed in the Apollo list in CUPS. I have the appropriate .ppd file and have added it in /usr/share/cups. How do I make CUPS see it and install it in Puppy 4.30?

Later: my mistake - problem solved. I should have put the .ppd file in /usr/share/cups/model.

Classic Opera 12.16 browser SFS package for Precise, Slacko, Racy, Wary, Lucid, etc available here Smile
