Some days ago CUPS told me to check a certain ppd file with cupstestppd.
And just for curiosity I did it for ALL of them: In /etc/cups/ppd and in
.../model. As it seems many of them are broken (HP is king with that)
but up to now CUPS worked fine with 500 printers active.
- What shall I do with all those *FAIL*s and *WARN*s and shall I do
anything at all?
- Will it be sufficient (and safe enough) to remove at least the *FAIL*s?
- Is the test with cupstestppd important enough to be done regularly?
I would be pleased to hear about other experiences in that area.
