It will need them. I know there is a linux CUPS driver for it. The guy

of them it will need and further information as to how long it can last
without them as the print quality degrades when they reach the end of their
life  (They, like toner cartridges, are called consumables - print with an
empty toner cartridge and do not expect good results!). I will do so.

not worry about their price of toner etc, it can be gotten much cheaper!)

If he has some packaging that it will go into (And, to be honest - knowing
him - he may have the original packaging if he got it after his company
moved offices), then It can be sent courier, else collection from
