I receive blank pages when i give a print command for this multifunction printer.

When i confirmed with the engineer, they said they don't have driver for Ubuntu/Linux operation system.

although machine is working properly on windows base operating system with the help from the CD which i receive from Ricoh .

  • The engineer is right. They do not provide Linux drivers.

I was able to print to a RFG SP1210N using the Generic PCL 5 driver.


printer-driver-sag-gdi is the printer driver for Ricoh Aficio SP Printers.

This is provided by the Official Ubuntu Repository.

You can install it by :

sudo apt-get install printer-driver-sag-gdi dvi2ps-fontdata-rsp ghostscript
  • Thanks for the information. still after installing this command, i am NOT able to print files from my Ubuntu.
