I work at a company with many network printers. We're switching many of our computers to Ubuntu 13.04 and I need to add the printers en masse. I figured the best way to do that was through a script. This is an example line to add a printer:
lpadmin -p printername -E -v socket://ip.address -m ppd
This adds a printer, but it fails to load the required ppd file. When I search for a ppd file, many of the links I find redirect me to a program called hplip, which apparently serves as a printer driver? But how do I reference those ppd's from a script file?
Here's the specific error I'm getting:
lpadmin: Unable to copy PPD file.
