(Complete) Page Description Languages PCL ®5e/PCL 6/PDF/XPS/TIFF/JPEG/HP-GL/Adobe® PostScript® 3TM First I installed the printer by using the manufacturer's -deb installer(1) but could not make the printer work consistently. In any case the interface needs some developments and it only works for printing, not for the scan function. Finally I got the printer to work (just print) more consistently by simply installing it thru the desktop 'Configure printers' menu and selecting a ppd from another Xerox printer which is included in Linux's database. Namely the ppd for 'Xerox Phaser 6180MFP-D'. (1) Manufacturer's .deb installer at: https://www.support.xerox.com/support/versalink-b405/downloads/engb.html?operatingSystem=linux&fileLanguage=en_GB
