Upgrading Linux print drivers with InfoPrint Manager for Linux Version 4.8

If you are installing InfoPrint Manager for Linux Version 4.8 you should upgrade your Linux drivers (PPD files for Linux ), if you have not already done so, for these printers. For the most recent information, go to the Ricoh Web site at http://rpp.ricoh-usa.com and click Support. Select your software product from the Downloads and Drivers section.

These PPD files are referenced when you create either a Linux DSS printer or a PSF other-driver DSS printer through InfoPrint Manager and when you specify particular trays from which to pull paper using InfoPrint Manager attributes.

Note: If these printers are network-attached through the internal adapter, you might have to install the back end programs for the printers. For more information on the installation process, please see the Ricoh Web site at http://rpp.ricoh-usa.com/.

You can use these steps to access these PPD files from the web:

  1. From the Ricoh home page located at: http://rpp.ricoh-usa.com/ Click the Downloads & Drivers link.
  2. From the Printer drivers and downloads page, click the appropriate printer model number from the bulleted list, such as Ricoh Aficio C5501.
  3. From the resulting page, refine your search or scroll down the resulting list of drivers until you find the link to the PPD files for Linux, then click it.
    Note: You might have to scroll to the second or third page of search results to find this link.
  4. On the resulting Linux driver download page, follow the instructions to download and install the driver files.
