Fuji Xerox CM205 on Centos 6


Hi, I got a bit excited today when I noticed there was a linux driver for my CM205 printer. It may have been there for ages and I just assumed that there was no driver. Who knows. Anyway, if I can connect the printer to my Centos server then life is going to be a lot easier for all the family.

I followed these instructions to install the driver.

All good. I plugged in the printer and cranked up system-config-printer which showed no printer. I then had a look at /var/log/messages which shows (the last line looks ominous):

I have to admit that I have never had much success installing drivers. Is there any way I can verify that the driver was successfully installed? Any other suggestions?

BTW, I am running this server in headless mode if that is an obstacle.

thanks

I'd try installing CUPS and foomatic and see if that works. If not try http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/forum ?

Try 'yum install cups' or 'yum groupinstall printing'?
