I am writing a printer driver and I am looking for a way to customize the s=
ystem preferences for printing.
When I select a printer in the printer list I can click on "Options & Suppl=
ies". Then I select "General" and for certain printers (Samsung f.e.) I hav=
e an additional button "Open Printer's webpage". I wonder how they do that =
since I don't find any hint in the Samsung ppd files. Is there something I =
When I select "Utility" instead I have three buttons: "Open Printer Utility=
", "Print Test Page" and "Clean Print Heads". When I alter=20
*cupsCommands: "ChangeInk Clean PrintSelfTestPage ReportLevels" in my ppd
by removing Clean or PrintSelfTestPage or by removing=20
I can remove some of the buttons. But I would like to be able to add an add=
itional button or a text field instead.
Or can a add my own tab to the tab view apart from "General", Supply Levels=
" and "Utility"?
I know I can create a PDE but the PDE only alters the printing dialog, not =
the preference pane.
Can someone point me to a concept how to accomplish my task?
Thank you very much for your help,
