I have a question about printing with linux. I'm a root of a small office. We want to change to linux from M$, but we have some HW problem. I've tried with Ubuntu liveCD, and I looked up our main printer(we have 2 other supported HP printers, they works fine), but it seems to have no driver support.
The manufacturer included the M$ driver CDs, but it only contrains GDI & PCL drivers(you can find here: http://download.konicaminolta.hk/bt/eng ... ntent.html with bizhub 211 / 163 Drivers header), what is supported only by M$ printing systems. This printer has scanner[TWAIN](then copier), fax, print function; it can be managed via IP, because we can connect it to a local swith/router with an UTP cable.
My questions are:
-How can I manage to work it with linux based systems?
-May I look for a linux server with virtual M$ OS with some other (haxed) printng tecnology? But how?
-Someone can write a postscript driver for this model? (The printig part[duplex support is necessary] is enough at first)
Thanks your anwsers!
