Trying to Installing printer drivers
 
Hi
I have a Xerox printer, Phaser 3160. On the cd that comes with the printer i got a file
for linux called "P3160.tar.gz". Having extracted this file I found the content as listed below

media/P3160/Linux/

These are the files in the linux dir,nothing in the other dirs

check_installation.sh
install.sh
OEM.ini
uninstall.sh
Installer.htm

Below are dirs

i386
psu
emailbook
noarch
phonebook
psulauncher
x86_64

As there is no ./configure file, what do i have to do to install the drivers for the printer

ps I am using Suse 11.3

Thank you, to anyone that can help.

Take a look at the installer.sh file. It's a shell script, and it may have comments regarding it's purpose. The package is otherwise probably already compiled, and the installer.sh does the installing.

Make the installer.sh executable with this command: chmod +x installer.sh. Then run the file as root (if you trust the distributor of the package). Unpack the package then cd into the directory that contains the installer.sh. Run it: ./installer.sh.

That should be all that's necessary to do.
