We have working Konica Minolta Bizhub C224e connected to Wi-Fi.

Windows computers don't have problems with it, so I assume that it's configured properly.

On my Debian Wheezy I can see this printer as "KONICA_MINOLTA_C364Series", in model field it says "KONICA MINOLTA C554Series OpenOffice PPD". I have CUPS 1.5.3 installed.

When I commit printing, I see "processing" status and then "Not connected?" Debian suggestion.

Please tell me how to debug it, I can provide all further information.


I have the same printer, which is working most of the time with linux (Debian Wheezy and Jessie) clients. The Konica Minolta website offers 2 PPD files for download, and I am using the other one (not the OpenOffice, but the UX version). This might solve your problem. Another cause could be the way the printer is configured: I use lpd://<ip-address>/Print But I have read somewhere that a socket:// -connection might solve my remaining issues with this printer (being not able to print some documents while throwing a PDF-error)
