I have discovered that CUPS is able to list its PPDs with device IDs (in contrary to STR #1552), only it does not work correctly.

Running "lpinfo -l -m" on a Mandriva Cooker installation lets only show the following PPD files (download locations listed here):

All files in http://www.linuxprinting.org/download/PPD/HP/business_inkjet/
http://www.linuxprinting.org/download/PPD/HP/all_in_one/hp_officejet_9100_series.ppd

That is more or less HP's standard-format PostScript inkjet printers.

What these files have in common is that they have a device ID line beginning with (lower-case D in the end)

*1284DeviceId:

but the Adobe specification shows(UPPER-case D in the end)

*1284DeviceID:

on page 72, near the top (also on page 213 in the list and on page 229).

So the check in scheduler/cups-driverd.c, line 802 should be either for "*1284DeviceID:" or case-insensitive (to work around PPDs with incorrect case).

First, reassigning the priority - this is a bug in the PPD files, not a CUPS bug per-se.

That said, we'll update cups-driverd and cupstestppd to handle this - cupstestppd will FAIL PPD files with 1284DeviceId and cups-driverd will use a case-insensitive comparison for 1284DeviceID.

Thanks for the quick fix, I have reported the bug in the PPD files to the HPLIP team at HP now.
