For all the folks that want to use this old laser color printer together with a linux distribution, I wanted briefly share my experience with the setup. I used the LAN port of the printer and connected it with the WAN port of an GL-AR150 mini router to connect it with my Wifi. I did not test a direct USB connection.
Short form: Works easy and flawlessly, thanks to vendor’s driver.
I found this OKI printer to be missing in the printer driver’s list on my Fedora installation. Looking around there seem to be some packages for Debian/Ubuntu for a driver – but not for Fedora.
Fortunately OKI is providing a driver on their webpage. When you download it you get a receive PPD file.
When setting up the printer you have to provide this file manually.
This was easy. Right after the printer started run. Even the status of the cartridges were reported and shown the printing dialog.
