Installing a Pantum M6602NW printer

Postby drsauerhoefer » Mon Jan 23, 2017 5:33 am

I am a new Linux Mint user and I can not get my Pantum M6602NW printer to work. Has anyone ever installed a Pantum printer?

Ok I downloaded the Linux driver from Pantum website to the Downloads folder. Then I extracted the file. Then I clicked on the Pantum driver folder. First of all the driver file is "greyed out." After clicking on the folder I get an error message "Archive Manager can not open this file." The file went to the Downloads folder, not Archives Mgr folder. While in the Linux chat room, I was told Never ever use Archive Mgr. Can any one tell me what I am doing wrong?

would you be happy to use a terminal? (control alt t will do that for you). I have downloaded the driver to look at it

If you copy and paste these commands: to paste into a terminal, you may find by right-clicking on the prompt line of the terminal, that the paste option is seen from the list

cd Downloads


tar -zxvf Pantum-M6200-M6500-M6550-M6600-MS6000-Series-LINUX-Driver-V1-4-0-tar.gz


cd ADF_LinuxInstaller


sudo ./install.sh


does that run an install script for you? ...........best have your printer plugged in and turned on

I installed Pantum P2500W printer to my Linux Mint 18.1 Serena 64-bit computer. First I downloaded driver file from the Pantum webside to "downloads" folder and extracted the file. Then I opened "Pantum P2200-P2500 Series Linux Driver V1.80" folder. Then opened in it folder called "Linuxinstall". Inside it opened another folder called "Resources" and in it I chose Deb-file folder, that matched to my computer, (64bit). this opened Software Center App and then just clicked "install". That's all. :)

Thanks Minttuilee. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to install my P2500 w on Mint. According to the Pantum help desk it wouldn't work. Your instructions worked perfectly. One step closer to ditching Windows :D
