How to get the Xerox Phaser 6125N working on Linux

Product Name: Xerox Phaser 6125N
Operating System: Linux

Hi all,

I am looking for a way to hook up my Xerox Phaser 6125N to my server via USB to make it accessible for the entire household via Airprint (e.g. by using cups). (Airprint is the key here; if there are other suggestions to get the printer working via iPhone and iPad when connected directly to the network, I am equally happy.)

My problem: there are many descriptions on how to get this printer working on Linux. However, they are all outdated. Most of them refer to Fuji Xerox Docuprint C525 drivers. But I can no longer find these on the Xerox website. Plus, they seem to be 32 bit, while my system is 64-bit.

Example: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1552166 

I have tried using the Phaser 6130 driver that comes with cups, but this does not work (printing job is canceled by the printer, rather than processed).

My system: 64-bit Intel Xeon (v6) with ESXi (so any low-resource OS can be used, preferably Linux)

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: How to get the Xerox Phaser 6125N working on Linux

I never got it working using the files from the Xerox website. I eventually found this page:

https://rickvanderzwet.nl/trac/personal/wiki/XeroxPhaser6125N

(I was a bit reluctant as it is not an official distribution...)

sudo dpkg -i cups-xerox-phaser-6125n-1.0.0.deb

sudo apt-get install libc6-i386

sudo apt-get install libcups2:i386
