HI! I'm trying to install the di1811p printer, but unfortunately there is no driver available for this printer. I would appreciate any help.
Thanks!!!:D

Hi Matuba

I'm not familiar with that particular printer, although I use mostly Konica/Minota laser printers here and they all work great.

Have you tried the pxlmono or pxlcolor printer drivers on that particular printer yet?

I didn't see it listed in the listings under di1811p but I only checked Konica, didn't check the separate Minolta or QMS headings.
It's also not listed on Foomatic either.

Is this a new printer? Perhaps too new for a driver to be written for it yet?

Good Luck

Dunno if this printer is similar enough to yours, but it's worth a shot. Everywhere else I have seen says that your printer is simply not linux compatible, so this is probably the best shot.
