I've downloaded a driver package (.tar) for the Canon PIXMA iP2700 printer and in the PPD folder the installation file tells me;

To install ppd file: ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --program-suffix= Printer Model Name

     make install

You can set the following Printer Model Name.


What exactly do I type into Terminal to install the driver?
