Mi scusi, ma io sono troppo stanco per scrivere in italiano in questo momento. Mi auguro che possiate comprendere le seguenti istruzioni in inglese, che ho adattato da una vecchia pagina dal Gentoo Wiki.
According to the OpenPrinting Database
you have to use the Linux driver m2300w, which you can find on the Web page m2300w
. Follow the links and download the file m2300w-0.51.tar.gz to your Desktop. Double-click on it to open it, and drag out the file magicolor_2400W-m2400w.ppd onto your Desktop (select 'Copy Here').
Open a Terminal window, log in as the root user, and move the ppd file to the directory /usr/share/cups/model/:
- Code: Select all
# mv /home/fitzcarraldo/Desktop/magicolor_2400W-m2400w.ppd /usr/share/cups/model/magicolor_2400W-m2400w.ppd
Note: The directory /usr/share/cups/model/ is created by the Foomatic package. If you don't have it, you probably haven't got foomatic installed.
Now right-click on the tar file on your Desktop and select Extract > Extract Here.
Look in the m2300w-0.51 directory on your Desktop and follow the instructions in the README file to compile and install the driver (you still have to do this as the root user). Once you've got the driver compiled and installed and the ppd in place, restart cupsd (if you don't, CUPS won't see the new printer driver.)
- Code: Select all
# /etc/init.d/cupsd restart
* Stopping cupsd... [ ok ]
* Starting cupsd... [ ok ]
Close the Terminal window, start Firefox (or whatever browser you use) and open the CUPS administration page http://localhost:631/
(If you are prompted for a username at any time during the configuration of the printer using CUPS, enter "root" as the user, and the root user's password.) Click the "Add Printer" button and fill in the fields. Enter a name for your printer (it can be anything you want, but "Konica_Minolta_Magicolor_2400W" is descriptive), where it is located (e.g. "My bedroom") and a description ("Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400W", or whatever you want). Click the "Continue" button. In the next dialogue you have to choose the device (if you attached it to a USB port then there should be an entry with the printer in the drop-down box). Choose this as the device and click "Continue". In the next dialogue you have to choose the manufacturer and the model from the list. Choose Minolta (MINOLTA-QMS if you have a Magicolor 2400) and click on "Continue". Now scroll down the list and choose the entry corresponding to your printer, and click on "Continue". That's it. Proceed to the Printers page to print a test page.With acknowledgements to the Gentoo Linux Wiki page http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/HOWTO_Konic ... d_FOOMATIC
