Review: Xerox Open Source PPDs

Currently Xerox doesn’t provide Linux CUPS PPDs for their range of printers. The best you can get are extensive (30MB<) Linux packages holding a non-standard proprietary solution suited for personal (workstation) use only. So, how to get an Open Printing solution for a headless server environment?

@jeroen.claus and @eric.lenaerts provided a solution with custom GPL licensed PPDs for:

  • AltaLink C8000 Series
  • D95/D110/D125 Copier/Printer
  • WorkCentre 5800 Series
  • WorkCentre 7800 Series

The PPDs can be downloaded from our GitLab savapage-env-printers repository.

You are invited to test them and tell us your findings.
