Re: Linux driver for WorkCentre 6515DN MFP is fubar'd

Just wanted to say a big thank you for figuring this problem out. The edited file needs to be put in the Linux downloads for this printer on Xerox's support page. I'm using the edited ppd on Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS with CUPs and it even reports ink levels. The original Linux driver package from Xerox did not work. The Windows driver and smartstart packages did not work in my Win10 VM. The printer keeps going to sleep during all my troubleshooting. I was ready to send the printer back and then found your solution.
