okidata 5200n > mandiva 2006
hello all, i am running mandriva free 2006 and have just bought an okidata c5200dn. This wonderful printer has mac osx drivers (thats why i bought it) but they are wrapped up in a .bin installer that i cannot figure out what to do with.
i know that osx is a bsd. i know that it uses the cups printing system. i figure that if i can get the drivers out of this .bin i might be able to make this printer work with mandriva 2006.
i called okidata tech support and while they do support linux on "some" of their printers, when i tell them it is a c5200dn and i am running linux they immidiatly stop the conversation telling me they are not permitted to even attempt any kind of linux support for this printer. I got this from a level 2 engineer.
so here i am trying to find out what to do with an osx .bin
