Hi,

i'm interested in buying the 1690MF, but did not find any information if it would run under Linux. Can anyone give me an estimate? :)

I don't know if the Printer uses LAVAFLOW, but it seems to be marketed as a successor to the 2490MF.

Minolta distributes an OSX driver in Apple Disk Image File Format,
I unpacked this to:

http://koffein.org/av/magicolor_1690mf/PPDs/
http://koffein.org/av/magicolor_1690mf/KONICA_MINOLTA/ (Also contains PPDs)
http://koffein.org/av/magicolor_1690mf/ also contains the Reference Guide (RG...)
and the zip file contained in the original .dmg from Minolta.

Kind Regards,
Flummy

Yes, the printer uses lava, so 2530DL == 1600W. I would also say 2480MF == 1680MF and 2490 == 1690MF (PRINTER ONLY). I will get these out in a week or
sooner (but you can use the old ones in the meantime)!
