Add a resolution hint to the PPD files

Bug #267669 reported by Till Kamppeter on 2008-09-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

The former Foomatic-generated PPD files contained a line like

*DefaultResolution: 600dpi

(actual resolution value depending on device class, usually the maximum resolution of the device).

As the HPLIP non-PostScript PPDs do not have a "Resolution" option this line gives a hint about the resolution of the device. At least it helps to tell that it is a 300/600/1200 dpi type and not a 360/720/1440 dpi type. This helps applications and conversion filters to generate or convert bitmaps (for example photos embedded in a text document) without producing interference effects.

In HPLIP 2.8.10 the *DefaultResolution: lines are present in hpijs.drv, with resolutions appropriate to the device classes. This bug is fixed.

Changed in hplip:
status: Triaged → Fix Released

I figured as such but was going to check with Dave to make sure no other follow up was needed.
