I am searching for xerox workcentre 6605 drivers to get our office printer to work in various ubuntu versions, but mainly 13.04.

Do you have any idea of how to do it?

I have been researching this.

I tried this without luck, I saw this but no luck (the printer is not supported) and more of the same here

How did you got it working?

Thanks you sooo much for your help :) It´s really apreciated.

  • 13.04 is EOL. Please upgrade to 14.04 LTS.

I had the same problem with the model Xerox-Workcenter-6605DN. The printer could be installed using the driver for the newer model Xerox WorkCenter 7228 which is included in Ubuntu 14.10.

cold case but could be useful for others. This post is a copy of my tutorial (in french). This has been tested on Ubuntu 15.04.

I solved this problem using Xerox drivers.

  1. So download them on their website.
  2. Add execution rigths to this sh script :

    chmod +x Xeroxv5Pkg-Debianx86_64-5.10.289.1486.sh
    
  3. Execute this script as root

    sudo ./Xeroxv5Pkg-Debianx86_64-5.10.289.1486.sh
    
  4. A GUI opens, accept conditions and wait.
  5. When script stopped, launch as root the Xerox printer config interface

    sudo xeroxprtmgr
    
  6. You can add your printer with this tool.

Note: I haven't found out how to set a printer that user can choose Colour or B&W, so I created 2 printers : 1 for Colour and 1 for B&W.

Now all that remains it to set the correct printer address, since the one that is created is file:///dev/null!

In case anyone is still looking for this, it's available in one of my GitHub repositories.

After running the "sh" file that you download from the xerox website, it looks like nothing has happened, but a new ppd file will be in etc/cups/ppd folder. Choose that ppd file when installing the printer.

In case anyone (including myself) stumbles over this question, none of the answers work on current versions of Ubuntu.

A few years ago, I found a PPD that actually worked after slight adjustments. You can find it here: https://gist.github.com/webmozart/30a8d132e37e3e270f4e36b36b556c8e

Save it as Xerox-WorkCentre-6605DN.ppd (or any other name) and select it when installing the printer.
