I have noticed from a number of posts that CUPS with HP Deskjet 700
series seems to be broken in Breezy Badger 5.10.

Basically the printers get recognised and accept print jobs but they
then just disappear with no output.

On my 720C my logs have errors like this -

localhost pnm2ppa[10572]: read_config_file(): error parsing config file
at line 18

Anybody know if somebody is working on a solution for this?
