Re: [PLUG] Which ppd would you use?

Thanks Charlie,

It turns out we do have HPLIP installed.
However, with all of the things changing in this upgrade, we would rather not make additional changes right now (since it does not seem to be required), nor make something late even later. No one here (or within our group at work) said it would be horrible to do it like we have been doing. For this release we will leave it alone and revisit this next time.

Assuming your LaserJet is supported [1], have you not had HPLIP (HP
Linux Imaging and Printing) installed all this time? You should be able
to use the PPD from HPLIP instead of anything bundled with CUPS itself.
