Subject: [gentoo-user] Installing the "ptouch" CUPS Raster driver

I have a Brother QL-570 label printer and the "ptouch" driver doesn't
seem to be available in portage:

http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Brother-QL-570

I tried to install it manually as instructed by the ptouch docs:

http://www.diku.dk/hjemmesider/ansatte/panic/P-touch/

 > tar zxf ptouch-driver-*.tar.gz
 > cd ptouch-driver-*
 > ./configure
 > make
 > make install

I then restarted cupsd but no new printers show up when I try to add a
printer in the *:631 CUPS admin area.  Does anyone know how I can get
get a manually installed CUPS Raster printer driver working?
