How to install drivers for Xerox WorkCentre 3045

Hello! I dual-boot Rocky and Fedora.

On Fedora my Xerox WorkCentre 3045 works okay with foo2hbpl and foo2zjs packages installed. On Rocky such packages are missing, so I’m not able to use my printer. What should I do to make it work?


On you can get the source rpm from say Fedora 37 (linked below), and use mock to build it. You could in theory attempt installing those F37 rpms and see if it works, but it would be better to build using mock.

The packages don’t exist for any EL distro as of present as far as I can see.

Thank you for your reply!

How do you think, would it make any sense to send an EPEL package request?

As for “building using mock”, this sounds interesting, but I need more instructions, since I have no such experience.


Submitted EPEL package request 2248868 – Please branch and build foo2hbpl and foo2zjs in epel9

There’s plenty of google results for that, first from a list of many:

Towards the bottom of the page, the command that is used to build from source rpm. The remainder of the article above that is for actually creating a source rpm which you don’t need to do since the source rpms for the packages you need already exist.

But requesting EPEL is also a good idea.
