"If you are using Ubuntu, the solution is very simle.
You need to install the following driver:

sudo apt-get install printer-driver-splix

Once the driver has been installed you can choose Xerox WorkCentre 3119 on web interface of CUPS from the list."

"Xerox Workcentres--at least the ones in my office (5645)--usually have a feature to show print jobs and their status on the machine, and it might provide you with some meaningful troubleshooting.

It took me hours of troubleshooting to get ours to work with linux, but the biggest problem was the User Standard Accounting feature; even the drivers on the Xerox website didn't work properly with user accounting. I ended up re-writing parts of the driver (.ppd file) to manage the accounting. I recount the procedure and post the driver I used (--similar methods might work for you model--) in this thread on the Ubuntu forums. Good luck!"
