Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase

The printer driver of HP LaserJet 1000 is stored in a .ppd.gz file under
/usr/share/ppd/foo2zjs. When I tried to open it from the 'Add Printer'
wizard, it did not work (wrong format). I had to manually open the file
using Ark, extract it to my home and open it from there. Since the
drivers are stored in .ppd.gz format on the hard drive, the 'Add
Printer' wizard should be able to open it.
