Hi Fredrik,

I can confirm that 2.2.6pre2 does indeed send the printer properties to
clients (at least for HP LaserJet 4050N, PCL6 and PS drivers). 2.2.5 also
works with the patches applied.

I think what Gerry is talking about is initialising the DeviceMode for the
device (as well as setting the printer properties) but I may be wrong.
See section 6.2.3 of the HowTO for instructions on getting the devmod
