D. Adding a new printer

This appendix covers adding a new ESCP/2, PCL, or Canon printer. Writing a new driver module is not covered.

The three steps to adding a printer are:

  1. Add an entry to ‘printers.xml
  2. Add the appropriate code and data to the appropriate driver module
  3. Tune the printer

Printer information is stored in two places: in ‘printers.xml’ (which contains the list of printer models available to the the upper-level application), and in the appropriate driver file (‘print-escp2.c’, ‘print-pcl.c’, or ‘print-canon.c’).
