Ubuntu

    1. Prepare the PPD driver.
      1. Download the latest PPD driver from the Konica Minolta website. Don't use the drop downs. Use the search box to search for the model of your desired copier ("bizhub 287" or "bizhub C258") at http://www.biz.konicaminolta.com/download/driver.html#mainContents
        1. Copier info:
Location Room # Model Hostname
South UTA 5.462 bizhub 287 cube.ischool.utexas.edu
North UTA 5.330 bizhub C258 ciera.ischool.utexas.edu
    1. Unzip the download and move the UX driver from Downloads/IT5*/English/CUPS1.2/ to /usr/share/ppd/custom/ and edit this file with a text editor. Add a line near the beginning of the PPD file to call a filter (that we will create in a moment). The line to add is just a few lines down and starts with "*cupsFilter..." The beginning of my working example looks like the following (addition is line 8).
      *PPD-Adobe: "4.3"
      *FormatVersion: "4.3"
      *LanguageVersion: English
      *LanguageEncoding: ISOLatin1
      *FileVersion: "60003.0001"
      *% Linux Version
      
      *cupsFilter:    "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 minolta"
      
      *Manufacturer: "KONICA MINOLTA"
      *ModelName: "KONICA MINOLTA 958SeriesPS/P"
      *ShortNickName: "KONICA MINOLTA 958"
      *NickName: "KONICA MINOLTA 958SeriesPS(P)"
      *PCFileName: "KO958UX.ppd"
      *Product: "(KONICA MINOLTA 958)"
      *PSVersion: "(3016.102) 1"
  1. Add the copier via cups: https://127.0.0.1:631/admin
    1. If unable to access cups, try "sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart"
    2. When adding, select Other: Internet Printing Protocol (ipp)
    3. Connection format is ipp://cube.ischool.utexas.edu/ipp
    4. Name the printer whatever you would like
    5. Do not select a Make. Provide the PPD file in /usr/share/ppd/custom
    6. Query the printer for settings
    7. It is OK if you get an error stating there is a missing filter. See the next step.

  2. Create a filter file called "minolta" in /usr/lib/cups/filter and fill with the following info.
    #!/bin/bash
    
    source /etc/cups/ppd/${PRINTER}.km
    
    echo -en "\033%-12345X"
    echo -en "@PJL JOB\015\012"
    echo -en "@PJL SET KMCOETYPE = ${ACCOUNT_COETYPE}\015\012"
    echo -en "@PJL SET KMUSERNAME = \"${ACCOUNT_NAME}\"\015\012"
    echo -en "@PJL SET KMUSERKEY2 = \"${ACCOUNT_PASSWORD}\"\015\012"
    echo -en "@PJL SET KMCERTSERVTYPE = NUMBER\015\012"
    echo -en "@PJL SET KMCERTSERVNUM = 101\015\012"
    echo -en "@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE = POSTSCRIPT\015\012"
    
    cat -
    
    echo -en "\004\033%-12345X\015\012@PJL EOJ\015\012"
    echo -en "\033%-12345X"
    
    1. After creating the file make it executable.
      $ chmod +x minolta
  3. Create a text file with the variables for the filter to reference. This file should be in /etc/cups/ppd, and should have the same filename as the ppd file being used for printing, but with the extension ".km" instead of ".ppd". (When you finished the installation in step 2, CUPS made a "working copy" for itself of your PPD file in /etc/cups/ppd. In that same directory, create this text file, copying the name exactly, except for the ".km").
    ACCOUNT_NAME="xxxxx"
    ACCOUNT_PASSWORD="xxxxx"
    ACCOUNT_COETYPE="0"
    
    1. Replace the x's above with the appropriate username and password shared with you at https://stache.utexas.edu

  4. Restart CUPS : "service cups restart". Now you should be able to print to one of the new copiers.
