i cannot find a way to get this device working, it worked in Ubuntu, but even extracting the .ppd directly from the driver disk does not work. The print job is sent, the printer display goes into print mode, but it doesn't spool up and actually print, just goes back to ready.

Any suggestions, as no generic drivers work either

With the addition of WINE, onto Pardus this printer issue is the only thing keeping 'buntu on my PC

My old Canon IP3000 works perfectly however.

This page is a good help:
http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/database/databaseintro

I don't know if your model is there:
http://www.openprinting.org/printers
http://www.openprinting.org/drivers

(A tip in general if using Linux is only to buy a printer marked with 3 penguins)

Thanks will check it out, Only bought it because I needed another printer and i was skint, it worked just fine in 'buntu, shared with a Win 7 and a Win XP Pc on the network.  The kids won't migrate because the colleges they go to are all Microsnot centric unfortunately

Why the suse driver?
After looking in the installation script, my conclusion was that this is a general installation script.
That's the reason.
Investigation continues..... Wink

If I search here with: Philips/Sagem MFD 6020
http://www.cups.org/ppd.php

I get this result:
http://www.cups.org/ppd.php?L590+I0+T+QPhilips%2FSagem+MFD+6020

Maybe it are sold in another brand to?

I think looking at the folder, there are scripts for each particular distro, incidentally if I use the search for ppd option and add the ppd file from the Windoze driver disk, I get the same result,  printer display says please wait, then goes back immediately to ready. Generic laser printer drivers don't work either.

Thanks John.  This one is a completely different animal, it's an A3 printer, I will try the driver, but the only commonality may well be the 6020 designation

There is a Sagem equivalent the MF5402 which  I think uses the same toner as the Philips but the cartridge is cheaper

That's correct.
When I have a with KDiff3  in the various script
in suse
Code:
#%copyright 2011-01-01 OEM
in ubuntu + all others
Code:
#%copyright 2008-07-23 OEM
and it's all happening with the command (the same in all script)
Code:
gzip -dc LaserProLL2PCL.sw | $ac_tar -

My suggestion is to replace "suse" with .... and maybe you will have a lucky day.

Thanks atoboo, will try them, I wonder if the cups version in Pardus makes a difference, and would the new cups make a difference I wonder if I installed it from source?

I don't think so.
When this would be the case then all previous versions of cups-drivers would be invalid.
And this is highly unlikely

Thanks, was just thinking but you are correct, it would likely mess things up.
There is definitely communication with the printer, it sends the job, the printer starts up, but it doesn't complete .
The RedHat driver is no good, as it wants to install an obsolete version of cups

Just had a thought, perhaps the driver is 32bit only, and I am using the X64 version of Pardus...Doh
