Installation of Printer Kyocera FS 1020D


I downloaded the PPDs from the net, but I don t know hoe to copy the PPDs to the following location: /usr/share/cups/model/Kyocera.
I guess its simple but I am not very familiar to antix at the moment, any help would be appreciated

your printer had a driver in the gutenprint package as per
http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/p_...d_Printers.php
use your web browser search function search term 1020 gives me an exact match

so you need to install cups and gutenprint
you need to ensure cups daemon is running

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/cups status
# should return running  if not then run
sudo /etc/init.d/cups start
then in web browser assuming its a cable or full wireless printer click on this link
http://localhost:631/admin

click on the add printer button

popup asks for username and pw....use root and its password

then page will show detected printers....pulldown and choose the
gutenprinter driver for you printer.

if you have problems tell us what you did and take a screenshot of where you are not quite succeeding please

I got the cups printer running.
with
Code:
http://lo
calhost:631/admin/
I can add the Kyocera Printer, which is listed there as usable printers.
I added the printer, but it doesn t show up in the list, where the installed printers are listes. Only the generic cups-pdf printer is listed there.
Whats going wrong here?

I finaly got the stuff running, the main advice was setting username and password as root instead of my log in username and pw as I did before. So thats a lot for your help.
By the way, how can I mark a posting as solved?
