I just tried it and got:

# foomatic-ppdload TKPH5601.PPD Tektronix-560
Printer Tektronix-560 does not seem to exist in the database!

It appears that I first need to add the printer id to the database (I
don't know which one) or I need to use an existing printer id, which
could be a bad idea. Any idea of how to add an id to the database?
