I am trying to make a Richoh SP1000sf laser printer to work under ubuntu.
The printer is not listed in the printers list.
Can somebody please help?
Thanks in advance

Here's a quick write-up on my real-life experience with adding the HP LaserJet and Ricoh Aficio MP 3500 as printers in Ubuntu GNU/Linux.I chose to make a note of this simple task because I was tripped up by it at first. The problem? The default setting caused nothing but garbage at the printer.
Have this old model of Ricoh Aficio MP 1600Le (DDST) printer/scanner/copier. Was unable to get it to work under Ubuntu. The printer is recognised in Linux and when I print a test page, the page is sent to the printer, but nothing happens or comes out of the printer. Tried the ppd files provided in openprinting ( http://www.openprinting.org/printer/...Aficio_MP_1600 ) but nothing worked.
I didn't know where to post, sorry if I have mistaken.
I just bought a Samsung printer which was supposed to work on Linux distributions. It didn't and when I called the customers support they just told me that the printer was working on Linux but not on Ubuntu and that I should change.
So I won't buy Samsung's printers anymore. But now I don't know who can I trust.
