There is no such thing as a "ppd driver". If you want the ppd file for your printer, you can download any of the PostScript drivers for Windows, Mac or Unix, from this site:

The ppd file will be included with the driver - unzip the driver file to extract it. A ppd file is a (text) file that tells a PostScript driver what  the printer's capabilities are. It is *not* a driver in itself. Under unix (all flavours), there is no system-wide driver as there is with Windows or Mac. It is up to each application to create the output for each printer it supports.

The exception is the CUPS "driver". This is a utility that takes the PostScript output from an application and converts it into something your printer can understand. If you have a PostScript printer, you can also send the application's output direct to the printer, but CUPS still makes it easier to handle things like tray support etc. CUPS uses the ppd file to determine which features the printer supports, and what are the commands to activate them.

If you require more than just the PPD file, please tell us what you mean by a "ppd driver".
