Where can I download the PPD file for the 7132 printer? I checked, and it has the PS kit installed.
I have found the solution here:
Xerox workcentre 7132 works well in color mode with "HP Color LaserJet 5 Foomatic/hpijs" driver.
I have I believe found the reason for this problem. Since the setup utility is compiled it was hard to determine why it was failing, running it through strace revealed that it was generating a setup.log in /tmp/ folder.

Things of immediate interest are that it is looking for uncompress and gzip in /usr/bin instead of /bin which is where these are located in some distros. The developers of this utility should probably use the "which" command to determine the location of these tools instead of assuming a hard coded location. I will write more as I uncover more solutions to this problem.
Temporary solution: (from the folder containing the setup utility for example)
ln -s `which gzip` /usr/bin/ ln -s `which uncompress` /usr/bin/ ./setup
This should cause the install to complete successfully.
Please make sure your 7132 has PostScript (PS) installed. On this machine PS was an option and will need to be installed to use a PPD solution. To see if PS is installed just print a system settings list from the machine. If there is an Adobe PostScript logo at the bottom of each page, you should be good to go. If not, you will want to contact the sales agent to see about purchasing the PS option for the machine.

I'm working for a company having xerox workcentre 7132 installed on network.
We can use it with the Generic PCL 6 drivers, but with the xerox's don't.
I've tried to use the ppd installation method, but test print faild. It resulted a lot of blank page, with the following text on the first page.
My box has ubuntu 10.04.1 installed.
I've downloaded the following packages form suppor site:
CentreWare for Unix Linux i686 Driver version: 4.30.28 and
Printer package for use with CentreWare for Unix installers version: 2009_11_11
I've read the instructions and followed that, so untar the packages, get root rights, and run setup.
The first package installation was interupted with an error:
/usr/bin/lpq: Error - unknown destination "/tmp/XeroxInstall"!
.................ERROR: No such file or directory
But the /tmp/XeroxInstall directory is exists!!!
how to override this bug? How to install the above mentioned xerox packages on ubuntu.
