    final update...

    so trying to answer all of your questions.... no, the printers dont show up. when trying to add them in ANY way there was a wide assortment of issues that ranged from cant find printer to print job cancelled. i swear there were more errors but this thing took so much of my time i just wanna let it go

    the end result was this. the printer that i WAS able to print to had the post script chip already installed, and we now have a resolution, temporarily using paper-cut web submission, until we get those chips installed.

    thanks everyone for all of your input....until next time!

    Yeah - I believe I mentioned the copier must have a postscript chip or software installed. I went through all that mess when we had a Canon copier. The cost for the chip was not worth it since the lease was almost up on it. But I was put in charge of finding a new copier when the lease was up and believe me postscript printing was required.

    Glad you figured it out.

    Sorry to come late to the party! I think you just needed to install the Ricoh PCL-XL color printer drivers, available here:
    Printer: Ricoh MP C6004 | OpenPrinting - The Linux Foundation
