LinuxPR: SuSE Partners with Minolta for Linux Printing Solutions

Jan 20, 2000, 07:32 (1 Talkback[s])

"Minolta-SuSE partnership: Full support for Linux printers."

"Last year's autumn trade fairs brought concrete evidence of a new strategic partnership between Minolta and SuSE, the international Linux distributor: Dedicated SuSE Linux corners at the Minolta stands demonstrating that the new partnership can bring the very practical benefit of printing usability to Linux users."

"The aim of Minolta's partnership with Europe's leading Linux distributor, SuSE, is simple: facilitate printer support. The resultant benefits are significant. Linux users can now enjoy high-quality output from the Minolta PagePro 8, 18 and 25 monochrome laser printers. The recently launched Version 6.3 of SuSE Linux features a driver utility that also includes installation support for the PagePro 8, 18 and 25 printers. In practical terms, this means that these Minolta printers will be visible and selectable in the Linux user's windows and functions such as paper trays, mail bins, etc., will also be easily selectable - an important consideration for printers with hundreds of individually customizable configurations. Another practical advantage is that Minolta has just launched an extended version of its network management utility, PageScope, to make life easier for Linux network administrators."
