How To: Dell 1320 Color Laser

Postby sqlpython » Thu Mar 24, 2011 7:49

About 3 years ago I got a Deal on a Dell 1320c Color Laser Printer.
I took it for the price of $100 as a bonus because I bought 4 laptops.
Turns out that Linux Printing Database listed it as a Paperweight.
Detective work found that the Printer was Originally made by Fijitsu and then sold to Xerox as a C525.
Anyway here are my steps which breaks down to Extract the tar which gives you an rpm. You then Extract from the rpm to get to the useful files and place them in the functional directories.

In the end you have a Cheap working Color Laser for Linux.
Excellent Print Quality and Speed

Dell 1320c How To

1.Download the Linux driver for the Xerox DocuPrint C525 Printer:
http://www.fujixeroxprinters.com.au/en/ ... 768&dl=108

2.Unpack

3.app-arch/alien can unpack and pack rpm's, deb's
alien -d Fuji_Xerox-DocuPrint_C525_A_AP-1.0-1.i386.rpm

4.Install the printer (it is detected by cups) and use the installed driver (it is under the FX tab)
Optionally choose install driver manually from the file in /usr/share/cups/model/FujiXerox/en/FX_DocuPrint_C525_A_AP.ppd

5.In CUPS printer settings under the Optional Components set up the 250 Sheet Tray, along with A4 page size.

Under Printer Settings you will find that this driver by default will not set the Sheet Feeder Tray.
Set the Following under Printer Options...

Optional Tray Module: 250 Sheet Feeder
Paper Source: Tray 1 (250 sheets)

For 64bit systems.......
Install the 32bit i386 deb and then copy
/usr/lib/cups to /usr/lib32
...As the 64bit system Cups will be looking for the 32bit drivers there
and choose your driver FX_DocuPrint_C525_A_AP.ppd from
/usr/lib32/cups/filter/
