Xerox DocuPrint C8
Color inkjet printer, max. 1200x600 dpi, works Partially
Recommended Driver: cdj550 (Home page, View PPD, directly download PPD)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


From other notes for printers usinf PCL3c It looks as if you should be able to do 1200x600. I haven't seen this happen yet but will update this page when possible. Printer control functions are also missing. (ie. ink level, align, clean). This printer reacts badly to port polling so define the port address and irq before using or the printer will never shut off.

Note from someone else: The Red Hat test page came out shifted about 3 inches to the right (and cropped on the right, of course). The fix is to set the margins to 0 (default is 18, which is supposed to be in points; guess there's a units problem).

Note to UK users: You can buy this printer really cheap (40 quid) at www.freecolourprinters.co.uk. I've no connection with them except as a satisfied purchaser. Here's the correct magic to put in your /etc/modules.conf:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7
(obviously change the io and irq to suit your setup)

Consumables/Refills: ~10 4 cartridges for CMYK
