I own a Xerox Phaser 3020 printer wich I want to use from a computer running on Debian 8, Jessie. The drivers available at Xerox's web site support Debian 5.0 - 7.1. So they explicitly state that there is no Debian 8 support.
I've tried installing the drivers anyway. Not surprisingly they don't work regardless of the way I connect to the printer (USB or LAN). Is there a way I can bypass this restriction and make the drivers that work on Debian7.1 work on Debian8?
Alternatively I can access via IP the printer's Centreware Internet Services page. There I can load a 'print-ready file' (extension .prn) for the printer to print. How can I generate this file without the drivers installed?
