Dell 1320C on Ubuntu 18.04 +

I finally got round to sorting out the Dell 1320C colour laser printer for modern Ubuntu distros.

The Dell 1320c is a rebadged Fuji printer that couldn’t give a crap about you wanting to use generic toners. So perfect for my minimal printing that causes inkjet cartridges to block up due to lack of use.

It has worked fine for a good 12 years, however time does move on.

The biggest issue is that there is a dependency on libcups2:i386 for the filters so this is something that needs to be installed on a 64 bit distro. Really does anyone have anything else these days?

Then the filters need to be placed within the CUPS directories and you should be good to go once you’ve added the printer using the PPD.

I’ve put all this together with a simple install script in a handy tarball to make life easy. Which has been superseeded by this new version thanks to comments from Simon.

It also has a custom PPD that adds in the 250 sheet paper tray by default. So no need to faff with the options to get your prints to work.
