Review of Linux Compatibility
The Ricoh SP 112 is a cheap USB monochrome Laser printer.
This model is currenlty not listed as supported by the Openprinting Rico Linux printer.
At the moment only an experimental Linux driver is available, which can be found at https://github.com/madlynx/ricoh-sp100/. This driver first needs to be downloaded and unpacked by executing the following commands in a terminal
cd /tmp/ wget https://github.com/madlynx/ricoh-sp100/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip cd ricoh-sp100-master/
The directory contains a script, which checks if all requirements for the driver are met. This script is started by
./check-requirements pbmtojbg [REQUIRED] : No identify [REQUIRED] : Yes, version: Version: ImageMagick 6.7.7-10 2014-03-06 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org Ghostscript [REQUIRED] : Yes, version: 9.10 ps2write [REQUIRED] : Yes pbmraw [REQUIRED] : Yes inotify-wait [optional] : No
If a “REQUIRED” program is not available, it needs to be installed separately in order to successfully use the driver.
In a next step copy `pstoricohddst-gdi` to the cups’ filters directory, which is normally loacted in /usr/lib/cups/filter:
cp pstoricohddst-gdi /usr/lib/cups/filter/
and set the correct user rights:
chown root:root /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoricohddst-gdi
Afterwards, the printer can be added to the system through CUPS’ web interface, normally available at http://localhost:631/ in the web browser. Click ‘Choose file’ and select one of provided PPD-files.
