BTW: when a user selects one of the shipped drivers: wouldn't that mean
that they disappear from the box?

Somehow it must be shown which of the driver packages is
already installed and which one can be installed.

I don't care how this is shown to the user:

- Gray-out those which are already installed?

- Have the check-box preselected '[X]' when the
driver package is already installed?

- Don't show already installed driver packages at all?

- Use a table or selection box or combo box or whatever
with more verbose entries like
"cups-drivers: various standard drivers (already installed)"
"gutenprint: Gimp-Print/Gutenprint driver (not installed)"

By the way:

There is one entry missing:
"filters: makeshift drivers for some awkward printers"

For background information regarding "GDI printers", see
