#Redirect[[CUPS/Printer-specific problems]]
This article will help you to install a printer supported by the [http://foo2lava.rkkda.com/ foo2lava] driver.
+
 
+
Currently (December 2012) supported devices are:
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 2530 DL
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 2490 MF (printer only)
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W
+
* Oki C110
+
 
+
There are a few more printers which are marked as "Alpha quality; PRINTER ONLY!":
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 1680MF
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 1690MF
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 2480 MF
+
* Konica Minolta magicolor 4690MF
+
* Xerox Phaser 6115MFP
+
* Xerox Phaser 6121MFP
+
 
+
If you have one of these printers and none of the drivers listed in the [[Cups#Printer_driver|CUPS-article]] worked for you, installation still will be quite easy.
+
 
+
First, you've got to open a terminal. Then, type the following, line for line:
+
$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
+
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
+
$ cd foo2zjs
+
$ make
+
 
+
That's the first part of the installation process. Now, you need to download a so called ".ICM files", which defines a color profile for your printer. It is needed to print colors as correct as possible. Depending on your printer choose one of the following lines:
+
$ ./getweb 2530  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 2530 DL .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 2490  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 2490 MF .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 1600w  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 110    # Get Oki C110 .ICM files
+
 
+
$ ./getweb 1680  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 1680MF .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 1690  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 1690MF .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 2480  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 2480 MF .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 4690  # Get Konica Minolta magicolor 4690MF .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 6115  # Get Xerox Phaser 6115MFP .ICM files
+
$ ./getweb 6121  # Get Xerox Phaser 6121MFP.ICM files
+
 
+
So, for example, if you've got the Konica Minolta magicolor 2530DL, you need to enter the following into the terminal:
+
$ ./getweb 2530
+
 
+
The next step to complete the installation process is executing the following command:
+
$ make install
+
 
+
That's it already! There's nothing more to do. You can now choose your printer in the GNOME/KDE/... printer configuration-tool or configure it in an [[Cups#Configuring|alternative way]].
