Hi all,

Anyone know where should I get Konica minolta printer driver for Linux? Especially for bizhub 350/250, bizhub 215, bizhub C364e series & bizhub 654e.
For scanning function, anyone have experience how to setup scan to SMB/FTP using Linux?

Thank you to all respond.

Use CUPS for printing and FTP to scan.
Just google how to install CUPS service.
Find the PPD file on most of the KM driver download sites.
Use an open source FTP application to scan to.
SMB will work as well. Just share your folder with full access and use a static IP on the computer.

I was intimidated the first time but was shocked at how easy it is.

Show me how to configure FTP and SMB, please.
Thank you

So did you get the printing working.

I found the SMB method easier on Ubuntu.
Make sure SAMBA is running on the Linux PC.
Create a folder on the desktop and share it with full access and control.
Make the Computer IP static.
Then create an SMB address on the printer using the web interface.
For file path just put the shared folder name.
For user ID put in the user account name and for password use the same account password.


It going to be difficult for me to give complete step by step instructions.
Be patient Google how to share a folder and how to change the IP to static.

if I create a new folder named "scan", then smb address = scan, or home/desktop/scan or anything else?
