This article describes setup of Xerox Phaser 3100MFP on Arch Linux x86_64. For this device Xerox provides only 32bit version of drivers and no open-source drivers are available, it makes setup a bit tricky. On x86 you should just install drivers from official site and configure as usual.
Plug in your device and turn it on. You should see something like this:
$ lsusb -v
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0924:3cef Xerox
Device Descriptor:
  idVendor          0x0924 Xerox
  idProduct          0x3cef
  bcdDevice            1.00
  iManufacturer          1 XEROX
  iProduct                2  Phaser 3100MFP
  iSerial                3 L508104LE514587
==Grabbing drivers==
It's easy, you can download drivers from official Xerox website using you browser or just do the following:
# mkdir scanner
# mkdir printer
# wget http://download.support.xerox.com/pub/drivers/3100MFP/drivers/linux/en/XeroxPhaser3100-1.0-linux-2.6Debian-intel.tar.gz
# wget http://download.support.xerox.com/pub/drivers/3100MFP/drivers/linux/en/XeroxPhaser3100sc-1.0-linux-2.6Debian-intel.tar.gz
# tar -xf XeroxPhaser3100-1.0-linux-2.6Debian-intel.tar.gz -C printer/
# tar -xf XeroxPhaser3100sc-1.0-linux-2.6Debian-intel.tar.gz -C scanner/
On my system I use drivers for Debian, but i think there is really no differences which drivers to download.
{{Note|I use direct links for drivers and packages downloads, but they may change, so if you can't download something, first what you should is to try to correct link or find new version of package.}}
OK, first of all we need to install CUPS:
# pacman -S cups
Since 1.4.x version CUPS requires usblp kernel module to be unloaded, so next step is to remove module:
# rmmod usblp
If you don't want to do it any time you boot, just blacklist kernel module:
{{File|name=/etc/rc.conf|content=MODULES=(... '''!usblp''' ...)}}
Execute driver installer and accept licence:
# cd printer
# ./XeroxPhaser3100.install
Start CUPS:
# /etc/rc.d/cups start
:: Starting CUPS Daemon                                                  [DONE]
Now open http://localhost:631 in your browser, add printer, and try to print test page. If it's ok, they you are really lucky, but most likely you see this error message:
{{Box RED||/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoprinter failed}}
===Identifying printer problem===
Well, let's debug a little. Change CUPS debug level:
{{File|name=/etc/cups/cupsd.conf|content=LogLevel debug}}
Restart CUPS:
# /etc/rc.d/cups restart
:: Stopping CUPS Daemon                                                                                          [DONE]
:: Starting CUPS Daemon                                                                                          [DONE]
Then restart last job and take a look at error log again, you'll see something like this:
{{Box RED||[Job 1] /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoprinter: line 14: /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoprinterbin: No such file or directory}}
As you remember, Xerox told us, that drivers are 32bit only, so we have to install necessary libraries. Use this to see, what libraries are missed:
# readelf -d  /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoprinterbin
Dynamic section at offset 0x10314 contains 25 entries:
  Tag        Type                        Name/Value
  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                    Shared library: [libcupsimage.so.2]
  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                    Shared library: [libstdc++.so.6]
  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                    Shared library: [libm.so.6]
  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                    Shared library: [libgcc_s.so.1]
  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                    Shared library: [libc.so.6]
  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                    Shared library: [libcups.so.2]
===Installing missed libraries===
Let's install libraries:
# pacman -S lib32-libcups lib32-libstdc++5 lib32-libtiff lib32-libpng
# ln -s /usr/lib32/libc.so /usr/lib32/libc.so.2
{{Note|If you driver binary is linked against other libraries you need to install them and create proper symlinks.}}
For example, when rastertoprinterbin fails to load shared library in CUPS error log it looks like:
{{Box RED||[Job 1] /usr/lib/cups/filter/watermarkfilter: error while loading shared libraries: libpng14.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory}}
So now try to print, it should work properly.
===Installing scanner driver===
Create /etc/sane.d directory if it's not exists, because it's need by installer:
# mkdir -p /etc/sane.d
Now install driver:
# cd scanner/
# ./XeroxPhaser3100sc.install
===Installing necessary libraries and binaries===
Scanner's problem is similar to printer's one: 64bit SANE will not work with 32bit back-end. We need to install 32bit SANE and libraries it depends on.
{{Note|I've found installing 32bit xsane frontend so long and boring, that's why I decided to use only CLI of scanimage, it works pretty and we don't need to install a lot of libraries. But if you '''really''' need to use xsane you may want to have a 32bit system in chroot.}}
Let's install 32bit SANE and necessary libraries:

We placed 32bit libraries and binaries to /usr/local, because don't want to mix "tricky" installed stuff with one installed by package manager. Last step is to tell ld where libraries are located:
Check that your ld.so.conf includes just created file. It may looks like this:
{{File|name=/etc/ld.so.conf|content=include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf}}
Now try to run scanimage, it should work:
$ /usr/local/bin/scanimage -L
device `XeroxPhaser3100:usb:001:006' is a XEROX 3100MFP Feeder/Flatbed Scanner
You may want to run scanimage without specifying a full path. Then edit you bashrc (system-wide or just for local user):
export PATH}}
