I had an older printer but can't find drivers. On oficial Konica web they don't have drivers for linux and in google I hadn't found any.

Any help? Thanks

KONICA MINOLTA drivers for Linux are very rare and they don't work... Problem can be solved by having one Windows printer server on which printers can be installed , and it will work on Linux with NoLinDrivers printer server, you can read full tutorial about how to print from linux WITHOUT needing any linux printer drivers or PPDs here: linuxibos.blogspot.com/2012/05/… –  linomans Jun 2 '12 at 10:56

They do offer a download file if you select LINUX in the driver download site. But it's just a README file with this:

Support for KONICA MINOLTA PagePro 1350E/1350EN and Linux / Mac OS X can be achieved using third party solutions such as Gimp-Print.
...
If "KONICA MINOLTA PagePro 1350E" or "KONICA MINOLTA PagePro 1350EN" printer models are not listed, please use "HP LaserJet 6 Series" instead.

Note that gimp-print has been replaced by Gutenprint and the drivers are listed under Minolta (not Konica)

In the search for new printers menu ( connecting the printer to a port before giving search ) when the computer recognizes Konica minolta page pro ... the select is selected, and the important thing is that when we go printer types to search a compatible driver does not have to look Konica Minolta , MINOLTA but once you select this printer will give pro 6e page and leave us the options to the right:

CUPS + GUTEPRINT v.5.2.3 (also 5.2.3 ) simplied . We continue with the normal installation AND SOLVED !!
