Thanks for the info Joshua, I did what you suggested importing the ppd file
from the system-config-printer tool. But anytime I try to print a test page
got a busy printer message and nothing happens. I can ping the printer.

using the 'hpijs' driver.
If the printer is the mp model and has PS, just download the PPD file from
Xerox and either a) put that in /usr/share/cups/model and use 'lpadmin' to
add the printer or b) ISTR seeing a "import PPD" option somewhere in the
