For Oki Microline 590 printer, it is mentioned:

Emulations IBM Graphics ProPrinter, Epson FXLQ Series.


For Oki Microline 5590, it is mentioned:

Emulation: Epson LQ, Esc/P2, IBM ProPrinter X24/XL24.


For Oki Miroline 390FB it is mentioned:

Emulation: IBM Proprinter X24 and Epson LQ


I just checked Ubuntu 9.10, and found out there is a driver for Oki
ML380. I think this is too close with your ML390FB, and will probably

Taking a look at Epson's drivers under Ubuntu 9.10, there are some Epson
LQ drivers, that may work with Oki ML5590, and Oki ML390FB.
