I noticed that CUPS does not really provide the PPD file I'm adding.  In fact,
there in the managing section, `Modify Printer', where it says `Or Provide a
PPD File', I select the file: ML-191xspl2.ppd, which is in my home directory,
then click on `Modify Printer' and it seems all right; but then, when I get
into it again, the file is no more there, and there is `No file selected'
instead.  Maybe this is related to my `Filter failed' problem...?
