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-compressed-ppds (or
foomatic-db and foomatic-db-engine), hplip and the
printer-driver-* 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).
