Which has the problem? Minolta printer, or pc? In usual cases, the only thing specific to your printer on a PC is the ppd (driver), and any touch screen stuff is all handled in the printer itself. If not, explain.

The problem with its motherboard. It is intel845 motherboard. I solved the issue with replacing the same motherboard .I have no idea how long will it work . So i want to fix it by upgrading the hardware.

The printer is controlling with a touch screen and its programm is running in redhat.

So there's no touchscreen if you don't have the pc plugged in? Remarkable, and pathetic also. Why would minolta bother writing a proprietary program for linux for just one model?

In any case, you seem to have the software installed, so what's the deal? I presume you know where you got it.
