For all those owners of OKI B4100 printers and other lower models in B series,Basically, it's a heavily modified ppd for hp laserjet 6, and uses hpijs driver.With this driver ppd you can use all OKI options, and you can set paper type, weight, 2 toner saver modes, tray/manual feed, etc.With this ppd OKI prints at 600dpi. You can tell your printer to use 1200dpi too but hpijs doesn't support resolutions over 600dpi.DON'T FORGET to switch off duplex printing in printer properties, otherwise each page you print will be followed by a blank one.

For those completely new to Ubuntu , download the file and double-click on it, then extract the .ppd file to a convenient location. Then go to System->Administration->Printing, Double-click on ‘Add new printer', then follow instructions, when asked for printer model, click on ‘install driver' and open your ppd file, then follow instructions again.

You can download OKI B4100 Printer Driver from here

This Drivers will Work Under Ubuntu Breezy,Dapper,Edgy and Feisty,Debian etch also

    Although I had problems with the solution presented by Daniel, I had success with the solution at http://askubuntu.com/questions/174176/how-do-i-get-an-hp-1018-laser-printer-to-work-on-12-04

    Specifically, Open the Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run this command:
    sudo hp-setup

    My symptom was that the printer was recognized by the system, but when I tried to print anything, the print job started and a “printer error: connecting-to-printer” occurred.
