FWIW, on the setup described by Laurent (we both work in the same
organization), we finally decided to go back to the method we've
always been using : load drivers from Windows clients. We more and
more only have HP printers and we're indeed using only one driver: the
HP Universal Printing driver (actually, it's more 2-3 different
drivers on each samba print spooler but that's much better than a big
mess of dozens of drivers that mutually overwrite files).
