Can regular PPD files be used with CUPS?
I don't know alot about CUPS, so pardon me if this is a question with an obvious answer.
Lets say I have a standard linux box running a standard CUPS configuration. Lets also say I have a few laser postscript printers (particularly Xante Accel-a-writer 3G and a Xerox Phaser (a recent model, unsure)). I can print from this standard linux box to these printers using a generic postscript driver via CUPS. However, I don't get the full functionality out of these printers... I can't specify page size from the app's print dialog, and I can't specify DPI.
I do have, however, PPDs for these printers on my Windows workstations.
Is it possible to use the PPDs from Windows on the linux box, to get additional printing functionality thru CUPS?
This box has varied in OSs, from Mandrake 10.x to SuSE 9.x (if that matters) ...
