11.7 Printer Installation Fails

The printer installation fails when installing the printer through IPP or the command line utility.

Unable to install the printer when the specified PPD file is not found

Explanation: When installing the printer, iPrint client verifies the availability of the filters specified in the PPD file. If the filters are not available, the printer installation fails.
Possible Cause: Unavailability of the filters specified in the corresponding PPD files.
Action: Search for the CUPS compatible driver for that particular printer for which the installation has failed. Use /usr/bin/cupstestppd utility to verify if the PPD is supported by CUPS.
