This driver is free software.
Type: Ghostscript built-in
 

Generic Instructions: CUPS, PPR, LPD/LPRng/GNUlpr, PDQ, no spooler, PPD aware applications/clients,

Important for Windows clients: The CUPS PostScript driver for Windows has a bug which makes it choking on PPD files which contain GUI texts longer than 39 characters. Therefore it is recommended to use Adobe's PostScript driver. If you still want to use the CUPS driver, please mark "GUI texts limited to 39 characters" to get an appropriate PPD file.

"pxldpl" is not a new driver, but a special way of using the "pxlcolor" Ghostscript driver to make the Dell 3010cn (and probably other color laser printers from Dell) working. The trick is to replace the "PCLXL" by "DPL" (probably "Dell Printer Language") in the "ENTER LANGUAGE" PJL command. DPL is nothing else then PCL XL.

Thanks to Samuel Degrande for finding out that DPL is PCL-XL in reality and a special driver, as James "Shamus" Hammons' (jlhamm at acm dot org) "dplix" driver is not needed. Thanks to James Hammons for testing this method of using Ghostscript's PCL-XL driver.

A Ghostscript bug in the driver breaks paper input tray selection. This patch for GPL Ghostscript 8.63 fixes the problem and allows to set the input tray with the "-dMediaPosition=X" commmand line option for Ghostscript. "X" is an integer number which depends on the printer model and tray. For HP "0" is usually the printer default, "1" automatic selection, "2" manual feed, "4" the upper, and "5" the lower tray. Note that for PCL 5/5e these numbers are different. This patch is required for Ghostscript 8.63 and older so that tray selection with the PPDs of this site works. The bug is fixed in Ghostscript 8.64 or newer.
