@lmcogs I tried xeroxprtdrv from aur and then sudo xeroxprtmgr
first had to download drivers found at ‘Resources’ ‘Link Resources’ ‘Drivers and Downloads’ bottom of page at http://www.office.xerox.com/multifunction-printer/color-multifunction/workcentre-6605/enus.html.
Ran the file with sudo sh and accept the license. Not sure what happened or where drivers were installed or if they were.
then ran sudo xeroxprtmgr and the xerox config program ran and found the printer. However, the config is not too clear and one needed more infor on what to do. The program crashed a couple of times when I tried the Queue option. I wasn’t sure what to name this queue. However I added the suggested printer and it installed it but to a place \\file\dev\null.
In kde in print management system settings I managed this printer and sent a test page which as was thought sent to \dev\null.
Did not know how to overcome this. I found this link from someone having same problem in arch http://forum.support.xerox.com/t5/Printing/ERROR-OSInterface-Failed-to-open-config-file/td-p/178203
Anyway not all bad news since I read on another link from ubuntu, I think where someone advised taking a ppd file from the windows installer. This can be found from drivers at first link, the file is xr6605dn.ppd.
I then went to systems setting print manager and created a new printer but installed driver from local file xr6605dn.ppd. If I remember on the second page where you get option to install driver there were two option something about apple hp sock ( not sure of name). When I tried first it did not work but then I tried the second and that worked.
I must say it was hours of trying and not too clear or comprehensive instructions. I concur with
bjorntj in the xerox support forum above.
So the xerox 6605DN works in linux. Xerox does a good job with xeroxprtdrv but need a lot more instructions on how to configure it. I would also like to know what arch or antergos think of the programme.
