Double sided print support for Xerox lasersPublished: 16th Jul 2006, 12:00:42 | Permalink | Printable
Double double, no toil and troubleXerox Phaser 8550 printer users can now enjoy double-sided printing thanks to efforts by Paul Vigay. After buying one of the new colour laser postscript printers, he set about creating a new printer definition file for the RISC OS printing system to support the printer's full duplex and page rotation features.
Paul said: "Having purchased a Xerox Phaser 8550 Duplex printer, I wanted a quick and easy method of driving it from my Iyonix without having to mess about too much.
"Full duplex mode can cater for tumbling - rotating the second side by 180 degrees - for those applications which don't support it. Support is also provided for optional third paper trays."
Step-by-step installation instructions are provided, including how to set up the Xerox printer to print over a network. For more information on printing using an ethernet network, click here.
