It is probably a compressed shell script.


There are several methods to access windows network shares. Samba is the basic project, and provides command-line tools to mount shares with username and password. There are a variety of guis available to browse the network.

Did you try setting up the printer without downloading anything? (It does not appear in the list on my system, but I have not updated lately.)

Did you get the driver here?:
