Sorry, I don't have any experience with this printer, although I'm
familiar with it. :( I don't know who it is, but you might try emailing
either the maintainer of the magicfilter package, or the original author.

to support Linux. We may not spend money on software, but we sure are new
hardware junkies. :)
