How can I add 32-bit support on my 64-bit distribution?

I'm trying, probably not hard enough, to install my printer (Xerox Phaser 3040) in a Fedora 23 (kernel up to date), but everywhere I look for troubleshooting, support for 32-bit packages is needed. since the Fedora doesn't have the "dpkg" command, I'm in a lil' situation here. Thanks!

if there is an rpm 32 bits package you can install it on 64 bit, specially if you use dnf since it will install all dependency.

I can find a 32 bit RPM for the printer model in this link http://www.support.xerox.com/support/... . You can download and install that. I think you have currently downloaded the wrong file (.deb) because of which you mentioned dpkg in your question.

@thejranjan, actually I've downloaded the .rpm package, but I get a filter error everytime I try to print anything. Checking some troubleshooting for that, I've only came acroos with anwsers of debian based distributions, they all say that you can add 32-bit support in a pretty easy way with dpkg. I was wondering if Fedora has a similar feature. I'm a little bit of a newbie here. :)

dnf will add all support package you need for 32 bit package, so if you do dnf install yourpackage.rpm it will install all you need.
