Rick, would you be willing to elaborate a little on how that is done? I've often been frustrated by not being able to figure out how to get drivers and where in the directory tree to put them even if I could get them. Case in point, I have a Xerox_Phaser_3250 and did eventually get it configured on a debian laptop but really had to go through hoops to do it. No where could I find a file that I could then simply put in a specified directory and thus make it all work which is how I thought it should work.
I don't mean to bad mouth CUPS- it certainly seems to serve very well. I guess the problem is that manufacturers sometimes don't want to be generous with what they perceive to be their intellectual property.
cheers, alex
