I downloaded the above printer driver, how do I install it in opensuse (
I am still learning.) John

It should be a ppd file like laserjet.ppd.gz. copy it to
/usr/share/cups/model/downloaded/ and it should show up in the printer
list when you configure it with YaST or point your browser to:


Ken should I do it like this Copy /usr/share/cups//model/downloaded/
I'm still new at that. Thanks John

Not to worry, we were all new to this at one point.

Let's say the name of your driver (ppd file) is ip2600.ppd.gz (I don't
know the name as I am not familiar with that model), then you would do the
following (all on one line):

cp ip2600.ppd.gz /usr/share/cups/model/downloaded

and then you should be able to configure your printer.
