Overall Review: I have had this for a year. I haven't had any problems.

Pros: I am using OpenBSD 6.5. To get this laser printer running over WiFi do: 0) Connect the Xerox Phaser 6022 to your wireless access point. I did this using a spare windows computer. I suppose you can do this through the little setup screen, on top of the laser printer. 1) Install the CUPS package. 2) Add the following line to your /etc/rc.conf.local file: pkg_scripts=cupsd. Reboot the computer to make sure CUPS is running. 3) From the CD that came with my Phaser 6022, I removed the file xerox-phaser-6022_1.0-22_all.deb. 4) This is an archive file. It contains your *.ppd. Do $ ar x xerox-phaser-6022_1.0-22_all.deb (See man (1) ar) 5) After extraction you will see data.tar.gz. That tarball contains the Xerox_Phaser_6022.ppd. Get the *.ppd with $ tar zxvf data.tar.gz 6) Move Xerox_Phaser_6022.ppd to /root. 7) Start a web browser and point it to "http://localhost:631". 8) Select add a printer and login. I had to use my user account to login. Logging in as root would not work. You CUPS will probe your wireless network and you should see an address like 192.168.1.X, where X can be any number. It will also identify the printer as Xerox Phaser 6022. 9) Since there is no entry for Xerox, load the Xerox_Phaser_6022.ppd. 10) Complete the CUPS setup and you are ready to print You have to use the absolute path name /usr/local/bin/lpr, /usr/local/bin/lprm, /usr/local/bin/lpq and /usr/local/bin/lp to print with CUPS. LibreOffice prints with out modification. You can print photos and graphics (*jpeg, *.png , etc) with Firefox xpdf reguires the following line in the .xpdfrc: -------------------------------------------------------------------- # Set the default PostScript file or command. psFile "|/usr/local/bin/lpr" # Set the default PostScript paper size -- this can be letter, legal, # A4, or A3. You can also specify a paper size as width and height # (in points). #psPaperSize letter

Cons: None to think of. Works like a charm on OpenBSD

Overall Review: If you want to use OpenBSD as a desktop then this Xerox Laser printer works well. This is a great little printer
