I have an okidata laser printer, and i just got the driver for this model(okipage 4w) in linuxprinting. There´s the only place that i found. It say that i have to installa a daemon patch and then the driver that is a tar.gz file. When i Try tu decompress it, it says that is not a valid file.

I think maybe is corrupted. Does anyone if i can repair it or where to get a copy of ths driver?

Thanx everyone
