Unhappy Installing Konica Minolta 2430 driver


Okay I really hate to do this but I need some help.

I am trying to install a Konica Minolta 2430 DL printer from a computer using the Mepis I believe I'm using 8.5. I would have to restart the computer to find my version and then I would loose this page.

I downloaded magicolor2430DL-1.6.0.tar.gz to /opt and have been trying to install it every since. CUPS will not install the minolta 2430. I am doing this across the internet because that is how my computer club has the printer set up. Through the ethernet. I have pinged and fingered. It can find the address for the printer. That is not my problem. My problem has been library files it couldn't find. Got those. Then jbig. Got that. Now I am getting this print out when I do a ./configure.

I have put these files in /usr/lib now. I have tried using Hannah to install a proprietary driver. It says it does it but you couldn't prove it by me. Foo2ZJS is supposed to be the right driver but a site on the net says "Here's the Foo2ZJS you really need!" http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ That doesn't work either.

I am the only one I know who uses Linux would appreciate some help. sigh

Oh and if you help me... Thank-you ahead of time.

I tried moving jbigkit to usr/bin/magicolor2430DL-1.6.0 and usr/bin/magicolor2430DL-1.6.0/src. It made no difference.

Hi dandielionous, Welcome to LQ. You shouldn't have to move the source into a specific directory. Do you have jbigkit installed?

Good luck. ;-)

Hello Peacedog,

Yes I do have jbigkit installed. My concern at this time is maybe I have it installed in too many places. I also have the same concern with the magicolor2430DL file. I have it installed in /opt /usr/bin and / now. I tried to install using kcontrol (I'm using KDE desktop). Now in kcontrol it isn't showing konica minolta magicolor2430dl or in minolta. I think I have installed it in too many places.

Now I am at the point of reinstalling the operating system or purging the magicolor2430dl files or installing in /dev. As you can tell I'm a little confused.

Oh well my computer if worse comes to worse I'll reinstall the operating system and start from scratch.

Thank-you for replying.

Oh jbigkit is copied over to /usr/lib and every place else I can think of putting it.

Rather than copying files "every where you can think of", try these next time.

http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.p...oving_Software

http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.p...lling_Software

Good luck. ;-)

Thank-you Peacedog,

I'm all over it like spaghetti on top of Old Smokey. (hehehehe)

Will report back later with results.

I haven't looked around, but you might be better off if you can find a prebuilt package in the apt repositories.

Good luck. ;-)

Okay, okay, okay good news first. I GOT IT WORKING!!! YOOOHOOOO!!! Only took about a month.

Here is what I did.

I deleted all magicolor directories, files, tars etc. That left me with 2430dllin.tar obtained from http://driver.wareseeker.com/Printer...zip/1eac06ad64

When I untarred it according to instructions obtained from http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/Untar I was left with an rpm file. Nervously chewing my fingernails I followed these instructions http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/Alien

After finally getting the driver to install it still did not work. So I went to this link http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/Network_printer

Still did not work. So I went to number 5 on installing a printer here http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.p...search=printer

To make a long story short I finally had to uninstall Guarddog. Had CUPS search for printers, found my printer, found my driver, and lo and behold finally printed a test page.

Then I reinstalled a firewall Guwf. Had to reinstall python-support debian file from site. Then could install uwf also.

I hope this helps someone else.

My printer is finally working and I'm afraid to touch kcontrol which does not show it as my default printer but I made it default in CUPS.

Thank-you for all your help Peacedog.
