> *ShortNickName: "HP OfficeJet 5110, hpijs"
> *NickName: "HP OfficeJet 5110, Foomatic + hpijs (recommended)"
> On the instalation of the Adobe drivers I had erros saying my printed had
> illegal chars on it's name.
The "illegal" chars were the commas. It indicates that your Linuxprinting.org
retrieved PPDs were not the current version. Current versions don't have this
issue any more.
> So, I've replaced the previous lines with:
> *ShortNickName: "HP OfficeJet 5110"
> *NickName: "HP OfficeJet 5110"
> Hope this helps anyone.
