Print on WC 75xx left tray with linux

Hi there,

 

our customer has some Linux server and like to print to the left tray, unfortunally there is no chance to choose the left tray as an output destination on the up-do-date version of the Linux driver.  

 

There is no problem do print to the left tray from windows or mac.

 

Does anyone have an idea, what do to? I am grateful for every advice.

 

regards,

Stefan

Re: Print on WC 75xx left tray with linux

Hi Xerox76,

Thank you for using the Support Forum. You can default all print jobs to the left tray by setting it at the machine.  Please take a look at the second part of this solution for defaulting print jobs to the left tray.  If this is not helpful, please consider contacting your support centre for further assistance.

Thanks,

Re: Print on WC 75xx left tray with linux

I have the same question - to default on the printer isn't really a solution. I need to be able to send some jobs to the left tray, some to the middle tray and some other to the finisher.

Re: Print on WC 75xx left tray with linux

I ran into a similar situation recently while printing from Linux.  I think it depends on the PPD file they are using. They may need to modify the PPD file to show the available output bins and then in their linux print command, they would need to use -o OutputBin=Top option. I found the following PPD options in another driver, which may help. I think it can be copied into an existing PPD, that is being used by the printer.

 

*OpenUI *OutputBin/Output Destination: PickOne
*OrderDependency: 20.0 AnySetup *OutputBin
*DefaultOutputBin: Auto
*OutputBin Auto/Automatically Select: ""
*OutputBin Middle/Center Tray - Lower: "
    currentpagedevice /OutputAttributes get dup 0 known
      {0 get dup null eq
       { pop }
       { dup length dict copy
         setpagedevice
       } ifelse }
      {pop}
      ifelse
    "
*End
*OutputBin Middle2/Center Tray - Upper: "
    currentpagedevice /OutputAttributes get dup 1 known
      {1 get dup null eq
       { pop }
       { dup length dict copy
         setpagedevice
       } ifelse }
      {pop}
      ifelse
"
*End
*OutputBin Top/Left Top Tray: "
currentpagedevice /OutputAttributes get dup 2 known
  {2 get dup null eq
   { pop }
   { dup length dict copy
     setpagedevice
   } ifelse }
  {pop}
  ifelse
"
*End
*OutputBin Stacker/Finisher Tray: "
currentpagedevice /OutputAttributes get dup 30 known
  {30 get dup null eq
   { pop }
   { dup length dict copy
     setpagedevice
   } ifelse }
  {pop}
  ifelse
"
*End
*CloseUI: *OutputBin
