foo2hiperc is an open source printer driver for printers that use the HIPERC wire protocol for their print data, such as the Oki C3400n and the Oki C5500n.
This driver uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components to the foo2hiperc printer driver.
- foo2hiperc - the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver.
- foo2hiperc-wrapper - a shell script (compatible with foomatic) which runs ghostscript and foo2hiperc in a pipeline.
- icc2ps - converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the users Postscript program.
- foomatic-db - foomatic database entries which describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hiperc-wrapper.
- hipercdecode - a tool for developers to inspect HIPERC streams.
You can read the manual pages for more information.
With the foo2hiperc driver, you can print to some Oki and possibly other HIPERC printers:

Now create printer entries for your spooler. Create at least one queue for monochrome, and another queue for color printing. Create the queues first, then edit them and set the device options as desired. See your operating system documentation for further details on creating a printer queue.

For a networked Oki C3400n, use a "Queue Type" "HP JetDirect" and set "Host:" to the IP address of the printer and "Port:" to 9100.
If you installed as per the above instructions, then click on our forums for questions and support.
If you installed a THIRD PARTY (e.g. Ubuntu, Gentoo, etc.) foo2zjs package, then read the INSTALL file and follow the directions. No third party support is given. You MUST install using the above procedure.
This driver uses uncorrected or imperfect colors. Please read "CUSTOM ICC/ICM COLOR PRINTER PROFILE" in the INSTALL file.
It uses Markus Kuhn's JBIG-KIT compression library (included), and Marti Maria's icc2ps program (included).
