New to CUPS administration (and linux printing overall) after inheriting it from someone who left my team.
I'm trying to get it set up with a Xerox AltaLink C8055 printer on Ubuntu. I have installed the .deb package from the Xerox website
sudo dpkg -i XeroxOfficev5Pkg-Linuxx86_64-5.20.661.4684.deb
with no errors. I thought I would be lucky enough to see the printer model now show up in CUPS, but it doesn't. When running
lpinfo -m | grep "xerox", I don't see an entry for the model, which I believe to be the issue.
After a lot of googling, I haven't come up with an answer. Am I missing a step or file when it comes to Linux printing with Cups, or is it just that this printer may not be supported?
EDIT: I was able to find the PPD file and get it to show up, however it doesn't seem to print the test page. I have it set up using socket://ip-address and have the ppd selected. I'm guessing this may be a driver issue.
