Here's how I got my Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P255 dw working under Ubuntu 12.10:
- First, download the Windows PostScript Printer Drivers from the Fuji website:
- Extract the zip file to a local directory.
- Find the folder which matches your architecture - x64 for 64-bit machines, or x32 for 32-bit machines.
- Inside this folder you'll find a .cab file. Open this with your favourite archiver (I used Ark), and extract the contents.
- One of the extracted files is called "fxtpn1a.ppd". This is the PPD file you'll need to install the driver on Linux.
NOTE: You may need to run dos2unix over this file, to convert from Windows to Unix line endings. I also had to correct one line which was supposed to begin with an asterisk, but had a single space preceding it at the start of the line.
- Under Ubuntu settings, open Printers, and click "Add".
- Find the network printer, and connect using AppSocket/HP JetDirect.
- When asked for a driver, choose "Local Driver", and "Provide PPD file".
- Browse to the PPD file extracted earlier, and click through the rest of the wizard to finish adding the printer.
- Print a test page to verify the drivers are working properly.
Here is a copy of my PPD file for reference:
