Re: Help Please! Konica Minolta bizhub 283

if you open a terminal and do cd /usr/share/ppd and then ls do either of these ppd files appear there? If not, if you do cd Downloads/BH423PPDLinux_100000000/English/CUPS1.2 then sudo cp KO423UX.ppd /usr/share/ppd ...... any joy? .. for what it's worth, it is fine on our Mint system
