Print Accounting with Kyocera and Linux

Changes to be made in the PPD-File to send print accounting keys to a Kyocera (TaskAlpha 5551) printer


The code below will add a password field with 5 digits to the printer properties. This is sent as accounting number. It works e.g. with Firefox. For other (older ?) programms you still have to add all valid keys (+lots of invalid keys for "statistical" security) according to the pattern of the line above the dots.
