in my .ppd file, i see the following text

% If the dscInfo dictionary is not set using the printer driver, the *% userlogin and job name are set to "CUPS User" and "CUPS Application" *% respectively. If the dscinfo dictionary is set, document name and *% user name are set as per the CUPS login name and Document name. *% The default print mode is Normal.

my question is now, how and where do i set this dscInfo dictionary, so that i see document name and user name.

regards thomas

You might be better off asking this question on a Cups.org forum. http://www.cups.org/newsgroups.php?gcups.general+T

That looks like it might be some Postscript code, which is not generally something people read for fun.

Try to find someone who actually writes .ppd files on the Cups site or http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting

http://localhost:631 and look in there to see if there's anything you may need / may help you. You could also setup and log into webmin, ( http://localhost:10000 - be sure to open that port in iptables) which may or may not be of help to you.
