If you have a copy of windows available, you could consider installing VirtualBox and installing Windows as a guest so that you can use your Primera device.

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

What is the model and model number of your Primera printer, out of curiosity? I found Linux beta drivers for the Bravo II, XR, Pro and XRP here, if it helps at all.

Regards...
