Printing to Xerox printers from Linux (Astronomy)


If you want to print from a Linux machine to the Xerox printer listed below, you need to use Xerox Print Manager in order to use all available options.


Linux OS


  1. Download the driver package (.tar.gz file) from the Driver section for your printer listed in this article.
  2. Extract the package: tar xvzf file.tar.gz
  3. Change to the extracted directory: cd file
  4. Run the install script as root: sudo ./install
  5. The script will install xeroxprtmgr (xeroxofficeprtmgr for the RHEL8 version) and related utilities and install the print queue with available options.

When you attempt to print while logged into the GUI, a Xerox dialog box will be displayed where you can select options like duplex and stapling.

Requesting access to the Linux print server

If you are installing these printers on a personal computer, where your username differs from your University of Michigan uniqname, you will need to create a ticket with the Randall office to have your alternate account added to the Linux print server.

You can email with the details of your request to automatically create a ticket, or please feel free to visit our website and submit a help ticket.
