I see Sagem make a variety of equipment;

sadly, there is little on google to help

option 1) if one goes here

http://support.sagemcom.com/site/modele ... 1n&pays=uk

there are drivers for windows and mac

by downloading one or the other you may be able to identify the ppd file and use cups to configure it from that

If you paste this http://localhost:631/admin and click on add new printer ; username should be root and password your sudo password; then identify the connection then specify where to find the ppd: it is usually saved in /usr/share/cups/model/ so if you copy the MF5461.ppd to inside that directory

as per this post

option 2)

and seems like there is a generic linux driver


......again, from the above post..................................
