Ubuntu – How to install drivers for a Konica Minolta 200


This copy machine / scanner / network printer works with Windows but no drivers are available for linux.
When Ubuntu supports a printer it works fine but this one is not supported.

I found the drivers in:

//But I don't know how to install them, nor which one to download.
//How can I install this driver?

The file with the driver is here
Inside the archive there is a .deb package that installs correctly but doesn't work.

So far the question is: "How can I make it work?"

I asked Konica Minolta Tech support (in spanish) about this and they answered me with this:


The ppd file I must specify is KO423SX.ppd

To install, add a printer the specify an uri such as lpd:// (replacing with your printer's ip address). Then specify the KO423SX.ppd file as the ppd file.

Adjust settings and print. In my case it claims there's no paper in the printer but still prints correctly.
