You would think most every size would be there for the guttenprint
postscript drivers - or there would be an easy way to enter a custom
size - but no - life in
2014 2015 2016 is still not so easy.
Open up the existing PPD and search for the above keywords.
You will see the Letter size most likely as the default and top entry.
Copy and modify it for your new size. The dimensions are given in PostScript points which are 1/72Inch (they had yet to hear of the metric system?? )...or 0.35277778mm from 1/72 of an inch You have to add values for each additional page size at 4 different places:
*PageSize Card4x6/Index Card 4x6in: "<</cupsInteger0 79/PageSize [288 432]/ImagingBBox null>>setpagedevice"
*PageRegion Card4x6/Index Card 4x6in: "<</cupsInteger0 79/PageSize[288 432]/ImagingBBox null>>setpagedevice"
*ImageableArea Card4x6/Index Card 4x6in: "18 14 270 418" *ImageableArea Card3x5/Index Card 3x5in: "18 14 198 346"
*PaperDimension Card4x6/Index Card 3x5in: "288 432"

Create a new printer selecting your new ppd file and hopefully it should work.
