Xerox Phaser 3115 Linux Ubuntu 8.04

hi there all

I am trying to make my Xerox Phaser 3115 Laser Printer work in Ubuntu 8.04. It came with an installation CD has CUPS drivers for a number of Flavors of Linux, except Ubuntu or Debian. There is however a ppd file that I copied from the CD.
Can anyone help me set up the Phaser on my Machine, really, I don't have a clue on how to do this myself as i have never worked with CUPS before.
Most appreciated

View the CUPS "Getting Started Guide".

open the CUPS web interface on your computer

Select Add printer
When you get to the page to select your printer See Figure 2 use the "Provide a PPD File" box to browse to eh ppd file you have for your printer.

Follow through the rest of the steps


No seriously the next piece you may have trouble with is the connection information.. How is your computer connected to this printer ? USB. Parallel port, Network ? if you need further assistance. please let us know.

Thanks !!
