Dell 2130cn printer driver for Ubuntu

by oneafrikan on July 29, 2009

If you’ve got the Dell 2130cn color laser printer, I’ve found the following driver works on Ubuntu:
Generic PCL 6/PCL XL Printer Foomatic/pxlmono

Hope that helps someone ;-)

Yes, it works. However, no color! I tried the color driver as well, same!

Any idea?

choose “PCL 6/PCL XL Printer” and in the right pane choose “Generic PCL 6/PCL XL Printer Foomatic/pxlcolor [en]

after applying the driver there are printer options in the printer properties window that one may have to apply to make it print in color. These should be fairly self-evident.
