File location for printer drivers


Do printer drivers usually go in /dev ?


Thanks.

Nope.

Device nodes go in dev. The location of printer drives strongly depends
on which printing system you choose, and under which distro you're using
it. In ubuntu the default would be CUPS, and the drivers should be in
/usr/share/cups/model



Cheers,
Tink
