I heard this printer would work on Ubuntu, but I'm having problems.
I dont even know how to execute the "check requirements" script.

To install the printer in Ubuntu, first you need to install a couple of dependencies:
sudo apt-get install jbigkit-bin inotify-tools
Now download the cups driver:
git clone email@example.com:droidzone/ricoh-sp100.git
Copy the file
pstoricohddst-gdi to the directory containing cups filters:
sudo cp pstoricohddst-gdi /usr/lib/cups/filter/ sudo chown root:root /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoricohddst-gdi
Now open the Printers applet:
Add Printer > Choose Ricoh SP 111 > Choose PPD file
If you're unable to select the PPD file by the above steps, try the following to add printer from the CUPS web interface:
In your web browser, navigate to http://localhost:631/
CUPS for Administrators > Adding Printers and Classes Printers > Add a printer
Enter your root username and password
When your printer is connected and switched on Ubuntu should detect it and assign it a name. Select that printer right now. Click next a couple of times until you reach the section where you're asked to select the PPD file.
At this point, choose the file
