I have downloaded a ppd file for my Samsung ML-1200 laser printer and placed it in the file...

/usr/share/cups/model

However, when installing the printer using CUPS I can't find the file Samsung-ML-1200-gdi.ppd file as an option. Have I missed something out here? Do I need to change something in the file to make it appear as an option?

I'm sure the connection is going to be alright as I can install another driver that fires the laser printer up but doesn't print...
