http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm having big problems printing on a RICOH Aficion SP C240DN (a color laser printer). Cups/Openprinting doesn't have a driver for exactly this printer. There are near numbers but not 240DN. It also seems there is no PPD file for this printer, as it doesn't accept PostScript at all. There are only so-called DDST and ICM drivers for windows and mac, but no PPD (as opposed to slightly older models from RICOH (320DN for example). The technician at the company where i bought the printer said that DDST is a stripped-down version of PLC6. The connection to printer works, i can access web interfac (HowTos)
