I have an Epson Stylus Photo PX710W. It worked fine in opensuse 11.2, but I've now done a fresh install of opensuse 11.3 and I can't get the printer to work. I set it up as for 11.2, so I'm sure it should just work.
CUPS job page says:
and CUPS error log says:
PID 1294 (/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr/cups/lib/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper) stopped with status 127!
While the scanner also isn't working, I think this is a separate issue as the CUPS log seems to suggest it is connecting to the printer, + I'm using network and usb connection.
I ordered a new printer yesterday... I am intending on using it with my Macs, but I am thinking I may want to print on it from my HP netbook running suse linux..The printer is an EPSON WorkForce 610 C11CA50201.
Does wifi printing work on linux? I haven't read anything saying it does, nor have I seen anything that says it doesn't.I also wanted to know if wifi scanning worked.
I'm new to openSUSE and have only used Ubuntu. I have a Epson Stylus NX110 all in one printer. All I really care about is the print capabilities, scanning is a secondary issue. Suse recognizes the printer but doesn't have a driver for it. On Ubuntu I had to use the NX105 drivers but they worked just fine.
I downloaded the .rpm file for pipslite-1.4.0-5 and tried to install it using YaST, but it needs "libgdk-1.2.so.0". I was given the error "nothing provides libgdk-1.2.so.0 needed by pipslite-1.4.0-5.i386. I am currently running 32-bit OpenSUSE 11.3. Can anybody help me with installing pipslite? I googled libgdk and I notice that it's in gtk+, but I don't know how to install that either.
I'm trying to configure my SX205 printer. It is well recognized, and Gutenprint driver are available. But the printer doesn't work, here are the error messages : The PPD version (6341210) is not compatible with Gutenprint 5.2.5. I am on opensuse 11.3; so the gutenprint version is 5.2.4, i don't know why it talk about 5.2.5. I have tried cups-genppdupdate but it doesn't change anything.
I am searching for a printer driver for my Epson Stylus NX420 Printer/Scanner. Should I use a generic Epson driver from the extensive default list, or is there a better driver out there? re: I'm running OpenSuse 11.2 and KDE
I want to setup my Epson Stylus (515W)-A letter before the 5 but not sure what. Basically when I open CUPS I click on add on new printer, I enter add printer but then the page says access denied. Also this is a network printer.
I got my Epson stylus NX510 all-in-one printer (just the actual printer worked, couldn't get the scanner recognized) working in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. I'm currently attempting a dual boot with OpenSuse 11.3, but when I go to download the driver for it like I did in Ubuntu (and it worked) I get the following error messages:
I've got 11.3 Gnome on my lenovo desktop and I'm trying to connect an Epson Workforce 610 via a wired network. I installed the driver from AVASYS and Linux Standard Base in accordance with instructions. The printer is found on the network but I still can't print.
I am trying to set up my Epson Stylus SX420W printer (via USB) on a fresh install of 11.4. I have found a driver called 'epson-inkjet-printer-nx420-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm', which I guess is right for my Intel Core i5-system on the Avasys-site that Epson refers to for Linux drivers.
I have downloaded the driver and installed it via Right-Click -> Open With -> Install/Remove Software, which seemed to go well. When I open Yast -> Hardware -> Printer -> Add, my printer is found all right, but 'No matching driver found'. Iam quite new to Linux.
I have been using the Lucid since about Xmas time as my main Distro. Up until Sunday when I did a fresh Install of Lucid 10.4 final release my epson printer was working, now it isn't even listed in the printer list, but it is still found with lsusb.
I have installed fresh fedora 12 & installed many softwares in rpm & tar forms , also i used yum to do installation, all these attempts were successful. But i could not install & configure Epson Dot matrix FX-2175 printer. Epson Dot matrix FX-2175 printer worked fine in my earlier distro fc11.
I've been trying to get my Epson NX420 printer to scan for about three months now, and I finally got it working. Here's how: 1. Go to [URL] and search for your printer. Select distribution and version and answer a couple of other questions. 2. Download pipslite_1.5.0-2_i386.deb, (or the 64-bit version), and all the iscan*.deb files (again, appropriate to your system). 3. [CRITICAL] Go to [URL] and download this 8.04 package which worked just fine for me on 10.10. 4. Use the Software Center or GDebi or sudo dpkg -i the .debs in this order:
1) libtdl3, which is a dependency for Step 2. 2) pipslite 3) iscan-data 4) iscan-network 5) iscan (If you use a USB connection, you don't need the iscan-network file.) This got my NX420 scanner up and running just fine. Installing libtdl3 was the key; in fact, I used the Debian Lenny package.
using "pclinuxos"my all in one epson sx100 psc is installed and working ,as is the scanner,they are both configured in the control center,?? how do i view the ,"change ink,clean print head options please" .you may have read an earlier post from me (now clicked as solved) when i was using "mint 9", i never did get it to work,
Since 2009 we are using Linux Redhat and all printers are working well. But when I have done Redhat's UPDATE I found all matrix printers (Epson LQ-590) not printing. Those printers are connected to the network by a printer server. When I do "lpr -Pprintername /etc/hosts" the printer prints the file but it not formats characters.
To print from my application, I create a file driver which looks like "lpr -PP112" in /usr/spool/uv/t112.dvr The first version was looked like #!/bin/bash # # $6: Imprimante (nom Universe) # export LOGFILE=/tmp/uv-smbprint-$6 date > $LOGFILE echo $6 >> $LOGFILE cat - > /tmp/prn.$6.$$ cat /tmp/prn.$6.$$ |lpr -P $6 -o raw -h >> $LOGFILE 2>&1 rm -f /tmp/prn.$6.$$ exit 0
Now this old version works with the HP LaserJet printers. But on the matrix Epson printer it can't work I put lpr - Pprintername or lp -onobanner -Dprintername to print something. The problem steel in formatting text when I print on all matrix Epson printers.
I can't use my printer/scanner - it is an Epson TX110. When I try to use Image scan - I get the message; "Could not send the command to scanner. Check the scanner's status."
There is nothing wrong with the MFC apart from not working on Ubuntu 9.10. I have had it connected to another computer that ran Ubuntu 9.01 (I think that was the release used) and it ran fine but now I'm stuck -
I have drivers installed but cant get them to co-operate with me.
I have an Epson SX100 multifunction printer which is a year old but rarely been used. The on/off light keeps flashing but I can't get anything else to function. The cartridges move into place but if I press any of the buttons nothing else moves - can't print, scan or photocopy - no other lights showing. Have to pull out the cord to turn it off.
From previous Epson printers I've had I know there are ways to override cartridge empty lights etc and wonder whether someone knows how to re-set this printer. Have had an online chat with Epson but as soon as they know it is just out of guarantee they point you in the direction of the repair shop and it is just not worth paying for a repair as it would cost more than the printer.
I have an Epson Artisan 835 network printer hooked up to my desktop. I am running a wubi install of 10.10 and cannot get it to find the printer. I previously had an artisan 830 and it worked fine, however, this new printer is not recognized in the add printer application. So far I have install LSB 3.2, and then installed the rpm package for the artisan 835 using alien -i. Now I am at a loss for what to do.
I wonder if you can help me please. I purchased an Acer Aspire One netbook running Linpus Linux on it for my daughter. She absolutely love it and so far I have managed to update Open Office to Open Office 3.0.1, installed Skype and installed Firefox 3.She has been doing her homework and would like to print it off but I can't get my Epson DX8450 to work with it. I tried installing drivers from http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do (which is where Epson tell you to go). I installed some drivers and the printer started to print it was doing some strange things like printer two lines of the same single line, missing the top off the letters and putting two line spaces in between each line.
I am all new to this but does anybody advice or even provide step by step instructions on how to install the printer (if they have this model printer themselves).Also how to I remove the drivers that I installed last night that obviously are incompatible?
