Dell 1350cnw Color Printer vs Linux Mint 12 x64 w/Gnome3

Post by gmbaal » Tue Jun 12, 2012 10:28 pm

I'm have trouble locating a driver for this new printer. I realized after the purchase that no where does it say it supports Linux :oops: . I'm hoping that someone has a little insight into ways to work around or find a driver to install so I can utilize the printer on my linux machines. Again it's a Dell 1350cnw Color Laser Printer and I'm running Mint 12 x64.

Thanks,
Joe

I know this thread has been up a while, and perhaps you already found a suitable driver. Apparently this driver from Xerox (eng_GB Version) works for this model. I don't have this printer so can't confirm, I was just doing a driver check prior to purchase. It would be great if you could try this driver and let us know how it is, or any other solution you have found in the meantime. I hope it works out anyway.

I have used the phaser 6000B driver before for the Dell 1350cnw printer on different distros (such as ubuntu) and it works fine. Everything i sent to the printer would print, but when i jumped to Linux Mint 14 (using the KDE desktop environment) it would'nt work.

I'm having the same issue, I'm running Mint 15 Cinnamon x64 - I wonder if it works with the 32bit version... Hmmm may have to try that.

After repeated searching I found this post and it worked for me:
http://misterpinchy.wordpress.com/2013/01/28/dell-1350cnw-lazer-printer-on-ubuntu-x64/

"
Luckily I found this post, which pointed me to the Xerox Phaser 6000B driver as a likely candidate. While this driver works perfectly for people running 32 bit systems, I was hindered as they did not provide 64 bit drivers (even converting the rpm did not work).

It turns out it is really very straightforward to run 32 bit applications in 64 bit ubuntu. All you need do install is:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

is the 32 bit driver working for me in Linux Mint Maya 64bit / Xfce

I have tried the Xerox 6000B and nothing happened. This seems to be a super huge problem. I do not want to ditch my printer because besides the fact it is only 3 years old, I have a stock cupboard ful of toner.

PLEASE someone tell me how to run my Dell 1350cnw colour laser printer with Mint Linux 16.
