DocuPrint 525A running on Ubuntu

[Updated Oct 2008]
Get printer driver (as RPM – need to convert to DEB for installation)

Extract Fuji_Xerox-DocuPrint_C525_A_AP-1.0-1.i386.rpm

Install Alien from synaptic if possible



cd Desktop
sudo alien -k Fuji_Xerox-DocuPrint_C525_A_AP-1.0-1.i386.rpm
(use tab completion so no typos in file name – nice touch ;-))

will hopefully make fuji-xerox-docuprint-c525-a-ap_1.0-2_i386.deb on Desktop.

install deb

After installing deb,

Installed OK and I was able to get the WPA working with broadcom card easily enough as per instructions in previous post regarding Feisty. A few things extra to remember – pasting into terminal is Ctrl-V AND Shift; and remember to grab the latest gutsy broadcom deb file. Plus install broadcom cutter BEFORE the final steps will work. Reboot to get card working.


  1. Restricted driver loaded after checking out updates (none needed) but not allowing itself to be selected even after cold reboot
  2. Firefox system fonts tiny
