Cannot Select a PPD (PostScript Printer Description) Type with Solaris 10 printmgr(1M) (Doc ID 1018607.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 9 9/04 HW1 U7 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 9.0 to 10.0]
All Platforms


When running Solaris 10 and trying to install a printer using a Solaris Graphical User Interface called 'printmgr', but when selecting the 'Use PPD files' drop-down menu it's greyed out. When installing the same printer from the command line using 'lpadmin' it is fine.
