Roger, I think you are confusing two issues. The OP was saying that
they did not see the USB device listed in the available devices screen.
As that is not usual I have asked for more information about that.

I really don't know what you mean by this. Of course Fedora allows you
to select USB devices as printers. I think you are confusing device
selection with driver selection.
As far as driver selection goes, the user interface provides an easy way
to use a downloaded PPD file directly: after selecting the device and
clicking Forward, select 'Provide PPD file' on the 'choose driver'
