rastertosag-gdi --------------- A printer driver for the Ricoh Aficio SP 1000S and SP 1100S Created by palz <email@example.com> in Feb 2011, Moscow, Russia License: GPL CUPS raster filter for Ricoh Aficio SP 1000S and SP 1100S. These printers use the SAG-GDI raster format by Sagem Communication and do not understand PCL or PostScript like most other Ricoh laser printers. If you find any other Ricoh printer working with this driver please tell. The SAG-GDI protocol is described here: http://www.undocprint.org/formats/page_description_languages/sagem-gdi Initial presentation of this driver: http://forums.linux-foundation.org/read.php?30,13489,13557 Installation: CUPS and Python are needed on your system. Linux distributions have this usually included. If you have CUPS 1.4.x or newer run the following commands as root: cp rastertosag-gdi /usr/lib/cups/filter/ chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosag-gdi cp rastertosag-gdi.drv /usr/share/cups/drv/ chmod 644 /usr/share/cups/drv/rastertosag-gdi.drv If you have CUPS 1.3.x or older run the following commands as root: cp rastertosag-gdi /usr/lib/cups/filter/ chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosag-gdi cp ppd/*.ppd /usr/share/cups/model/ chmod 644 /usr/share/cups/model/rsp1?00s.ppd killall -HUP cupsd After that, set up your printer with the usual tools. Often it is enough to simply plug in the printer on USB and turn it on. Then a print queue with the newly installed driver will get set up automatically. If not, or if the printer is connected via the network, use the distribution's printer setup tool or the web interface of CUPS (http://localhost:631/).
