Status Magicolor 3730?

Hi all,

I bought a Magicolor 3730 a month ago. The ad mentioned Postscript3-compatibility, so I didn't expect any issues on Ubuntu. Turns out I was wrong. :-( Digging around with wireshark I found the keyword "LAVAFLOW" in the data sent to the printer, used that information to discover foo2lava and was pretty happy when the changelog mentioned

* lavadecode: adjust for magicolor 3730

However, though I think I followed every detail of the instructions, I'm stuck with printing white pages on Ubuntu right now. :-(

I guess "adjust" doens't mean "full support" anyway? ;-)

But any ideas on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

This is not a JBIG printer. Thus, no support.

lavadecode is a tool to reverse engineer a printer. Go reverse engineer it!
