I am attempting to use a Ricoh Aficio MP 2000 printer on Kubuntu 13.04, to no avail. It sees the printer (and other printers) and can print successfully to other printers, including another Ricoh printer, but I get driver errors on the MP 2000 regardless of which one I use.

I have tried the Gutenprint one, the Openprinting.org one, and the other two default options, as well as downloading a straight PPD. They all result in a paper size/type mismatch error. I can then choose to form feed, and they give me one of the following errors:

%!
userdict dup(/004) cvn{}put (\004\00

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%%%% If you can read this you are us
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

There is more to the error, but that is all that prints.

%!PS-Adobe-3.0
%% %%
mark
() () (2013091

There is likely more to that error as well, but I could not find it.

Let me know if you need any more information.

Any information leading to the arrest solving of this problem would be greatly appreciated!

In this thread, the solution was to use the PPD for the Ricoh Aficio MP C2050 PXL, rather than the one for the MP 2000.

This driver can be downloaded here.

The solution I found was to use the PXL drivers, rather that the PS ones.
