Dear fellow users of Xerox,
Recently I bought the WorkCentre 6515 DN and connected in to my Mint 20.1c. During the download of the offical driver, I noticed the folloing:
Digital Front End
What does "built-in controller" x4 mean?
That also made me wondering, what can this driver do, compare to the offical driver for W10 (which I have installed on my VM W10)?
The WorkCentre 6515 device does not have a Digital Front End, so I think that Linux driver is a general driver for multiple different models. I would recommend the Windows 10 driver made specifically for the 6515 if you are able to use it.
Thank you for using the Support Forum. Since the Linux driver is compatible with several printer families that all have built in controllers it is listed multiple times. The built in controllers are a little different depending on the product family you are using. As for what it can do over the Windows drivers, it would offer a more product specific interface for the printer you are using instead of the general interface. Please consider contacting your support centre for further assistance.
