Fuji-Xerox CM1115 w printer driver?


It's a 600dpi monochrome A4 laser printer with usb connection. I'm running puppy linux 6.03. Kern. 3.14.20 (i686) There are Mac drivers-do I use them? No non-OS driver. I have the OEM win/Mac driver CD. Solutions?

The DocuPrint CM115W model is not explicitly listed as being supported by any open source driver, but I did find this online manual which makes reference to a Linux driver (RPM package) being available on the install CD? Anyway, I'll leave you to research that further for yourself.

There is a foo2hbpl driver that supports a few Fuji-Xerox printers employing the HBPL protocol. The CM115W specs mention that it uses 'Print Language or PDL (Page Description Language) Host-based', so I'm not sure whether the driver is suitable or not. Information about this driver here

http://foo2hbpl.rkkda.com/

Another option may be to take advantage of Google Cloud Print (as this model is capable according to the specs). I don't have experience with using Google Cloud Print, so can only point you at pages that might give you a better idea...

Good luck.

Sorry it's a CP1115 w.

small error, but no change. My OEM CD from Vietnam #LIA359001 does not have any linux driver.

Okay, but that (small error) means only option 2 might be possible (and that's a long shot). This hardware may be a brick as far as Linux is concerned.

BTW, I think you mean CP115W (too many 1's). From the foo2hbpl reference I gave you, it mentions unsupported printers that might work with Host Based Printer Language v1. The CP105b is one of those. It might be worth considering (if the v2 driver is not compatible).

I've got the CM115w and although the instructions say it's compatible with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit - it wasn't compatible with my Neon (KDE) based off Ubuntu 16.04 64bit until a hero saved the day.

Replace his printer .deb with your own. Worked for me Thanks Douglas!

http://douglask.fog.org/home/xerox-phaser-6010n
Code:
Getting the Xerox Phaser 6010N working on Ubuntu 64bit 13.10, 14.04 and higher is non-obvious as Xerox only provides 32bit drivers for this printer, and those are only certified for use on versions of Ubuntu that are no longer supported.  It seems clear to me that Xerox putting the penguin on the box and providing a single release of a 32 bit driver was a marketing checkbox, not a commitment to provide the phenomenal support that Xerox is known for. </rant>

So, the down and dirty of it.
  • Download the .DEB driver that Xerox supplies (Here's a link for your convenience).
  • It comes packaged as a .zip file, so extract the .zip file.
  • Now that we have the required driver handy, we can pre-configure your system: [-] sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 [-] sudo apt-get update [-] sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libcupsimage2:i386
  • Next, install the printer driver and any dependencies it may have. The apt-get command will install any missing dependencies and complete the installation of the driver if needed. [-] cd /path/to/driver [-] sudo dpkg -i xerox-phaser-6000-6010_1.0-1_i386.deb [-] apt-get -f install
  • Now, use the printer applet in your system settings to add the printer. Ubuntu should auto-detect the printer and the driver.
I've created this page for my reference. With luck I'll remember that it exists!
