Error during driver "make" [solved - no GIPD driver]

These are the steps I followed and the error that I get:

My printer is a RICOH Aficio SP C240 SF, but I don't even get to the point of getting the driver installed. Will Either the 100 or 204 ppd files work with my printer?

Also, on a side note, you should run your forum on a secure server (https).

From the README:
Download:
    $ wget -O pstoricohddst.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/pstoricohddst.tar.gz

Unpack:
    $ tar zxf pstoricohddst.tar.gz
    $ cd pstoricohddst

Compile:
    $ make

Install driver:
    $ su                        OR      $ sudo make install
    # make install
You just did "sudo make" instead of "sudo make install".
$ sudo make install
install -d /usr/lib/cups/filter/
install -m 0555 pstoricohddst-gdi /usr/lib/cups/filter/
install -d /usr/share/cups/model/RicohAficioSP1xx-2xx-PPDs/ricoh/
install -m 0644 RICOH_Aficio_SP_100.ppd \
    /usr/share/cups/model/RicohAficioSP1xx-2xx-PPDs/ricoh/
install -m 0644 RICOH_Aficio_SP_204.ppd \
    /usr/share/cups/model/RicohAficioSP1xx-2xx-PPDs/ricoh/

I don't think RICOH Aficio SP C240 SF will be supported, though. Maybe monochrome. My driver doesn't have color at all.

I read the instructions. The instructions say to do the "make" to compile the software before the "make install" which installs the driver, which is common when compiling and installing software from source.

[dbemowsk@phpwebscripting pstoricohddst]$ sudo make
[sudo] password for dbemowsk:
make: Nothing to be done for 'all'.

It should be:

[dbemowsk@phpwebscripting pstoricohddst]$ sudo make install

*NOT*:

dbemowsk@phpwebscripting pstoricohddst] $ sudo make

So I read somewhere else that what I thought was an error, was not actually an error. I did the make, and then the make install and it appears to have installed. I am having trouble however getting it to work with my SP 240 printer. Print jobs keep erroring out.

Looks like it is a bastard form of Granite Image Printer Driver (GIPD) stream. Granite Systems was acquired by Monotype Imaging.

Unfortunately, I haven't got a printer driver for GIPD, just a program for decoding it (gipddecode).

It is *not* DDST stream like Ricoh Aficio SP 112 or Ricoh Aficio SP 201.
