Re: Workcentre 4250 driver linux

That is correct. To use XSAcc you would have to edit the ppd with the accounting credentials already on it. Which means you would have to install 1 PPD per user.

 

In this case, Maybe the best way will be to use CentreWare for Unix like you were.

Re: Workcentre 4250 driver linux

Hi,

 

I would like to assure you that I have done this with this specific printer before and that a already done ppd but I don´t, therefore you will have to test a bit an see if this works. The idea is:

  1. Download and Install Windows Print driver for 4250.
  2. Setup the driver with the Account you want to configure the Linux box with.
  3. Print-to-File any job you want and save the prn file
  4. Open the prn and extract the information about the accounting (Should no more then 3 lines)
  5. Download the PPD package (the same used for xpp) )from the 4250 webpage,
  6. Open the PPD and pasta the accounting information previous copied from the prn file into any header (i.e. Instalable Options)
  7. Save the PPD
  8. Open CUPS and add a printer with the custom PPD.

This should allow you to print with a specific accounting code.

Re: Workcentre 4250 driver linux

I am trying to install the Linux driver for the Xerox WorkCentre 4250 on a Toshiba Satellite A215 S4697 running Linux Mint 9 Isadora. I download the XeroxLinuxi686xpxx_4.30.28.tar package, untar it, cd into the directory, run

 

sudo ./setup

 

and I get the error message

 

/usr/bin/lpq: Error - unknown destination "/tmp"!
................ERROR: No such file or directory

 

and the installer crashes. (There does appear to be a /tmp directory on my system.) Can anyone help?

Re: Workcentre 4250 driver linux

in response to:

/usr/bin/lpq: Error - unknown destination "/tmp"!
................ERROR: No such file or directory

 

I just had the same problem on ubuntu 10.04.

I found that the installer was looking in /usr/bin for both gzip and uncompress. Mine live in /bin so I had to create two simlinks to sort it out.

 

ie:

 

ln -s /bin/gzip    /usr/bin/gzip

ln -s /bin/uncompress    /usr/bin/uncompress

 

and then it worked.

 

You should find a setup.log in the temp_dir that may help out if that's not the problem.

 

It would be nice if the installer could 'which gzip' or something to avoid such a trivial break. 1 hr wasted.

 

good luck.
