    Hiya, need more info.

    What's the distro and what are you using to set up the printers?

    Also, what exactly is it that you want to know? Where it gets the driver list from?

    The driver list is directly from the foomatic database from linuxprinting.org. You can find all files concerning it in /usr/share/foomatic.
