Setup on Linux

First you have to download the driver file x2UNIV-C8030.ppd from the attachment. For the installation you need root rights e.g. with the help of the command sudo. The following commands (for simple cut & paste) set up the printer with the name followme local:

The Xerox Universal Printer Driver used is no different from the driver used with the previous Xerox WorkCentre 7835s. For the AltaLink C8030 printer everything can be take over.

Note: You must execute the following commands in the folder where the driver file is located.

  1. curl -O https://wiki.in.tum.de/foswiki/pub/Informatik/Benutzerwiki/XeroxDrucker/x2UNIV-C8030.ppd
  2. sudo lpadmin -E -p followme -v ipps://print.in.tum.de/printers/followme -P x2UNIV-C8030.ppd -D "Xerox-Followme" -L "TUM-FMI"
  3. sudo cupsenable followme
  4. sudo cupsaccept followme
  5. Register at https://ucentral.in.tum.de/cgi-bin/printman.cgi and activate your computer for printing.

To set up a separate queue called = printer = for documents that can only be called up on the printers in the printer, use these commands. A ppd file preconfigured for the Professional Finisher x2UNIV-C8045-pf.ppd is used.

  1. curl -O https://wiki.in.tum.de/foswiki/pub/Informatik/Benutzerwiki/XeroxDrucker/x2UNIV-C8045-pf.ppd
  2. sudo lpadmin -E -p druckerei -v ipps://print.in.tum.de/printers/druckerei -P x2UNIV-C8045-pf.ppd -D "Xerox-Druckerei" -L "TUM-FMI-Druckerei"
  3. sudo cupsenable druckerei
  4. sudo cupsaccept druckerei
  5. Register at https://ucentral.in.tum.de/cgi-bin/printman.cgi and activate your computer for printing.
