Novell iPrint for Linux


Clicking the "Add From File" button within the iManager -> iPrint -> Manage Driver Store -> Drivers -> Mac page does not allow the ability to select Mac PDE drivers.  PPD driver types are the only type allowed.


Novell is evaluating if/when the upload of PDEs will be supported.
