My new homeoffice printer, a Panasonic kx-mb2515, arrived yesterday ... and I'm starting to realize that Panny can do way more than toughbooks ;-)
It's just fascinating to watch and hear it duplex scan a bunch of papers from the adf tray while outputting 8in1 hardcopies.

Also featuring direct radf scanning/printing to/from usb stick.... aka air-gapped printing for the practical paranoids :P


Doesn't seem to do borderless though... :damnit:
Anyone know of a place that hands out firmware updates for these things? :help:

Hi Shawn,

thanks for the link.
I've already installed MFS22_102_ENG.exe, which is only the Windows driver.
I'm looking for firmware updates of the device itself, hoping for more usb-direct-print file formats and maybe even borderless printing,

Last update 2013...wow

Cheers,
Karl

May have to dig though the Japan and Canada sites, they sometimes have more stuff (as far as drivers and stuff like that go) than the USA site.

Some manufacturers include a firmware update into the newer driver package.

It looks like the kx-mb2515 may be a Europe only model.

See if it's mentioned in CUPS. (Linux) Yep ..................it's mentioned all over the place. I didn't see firmware on a quick scan.
