[SOLVED]How to install printer driver?

Post#1 by imam » 15 Dec 2011, 18:21

I have problem to installing printer driver EPSON Stylus Photo T60. Now connect and, detected by CUPS, but didn't found any matching driver.

http://linux.avasys.jp/drivers/lsb/epso ... x86_64.rpm
http://linux.avasys.jp/drivers/lsb/epso ... _amd64.deb
Links above are matching driver from Avasys Corp. with .deb and .rpm packages. Which packages are suitable for Porteus-v1.1-rc2-x86_64? and how to convert to xzm modules?

@francois:
I didn't convert the driver from the link above, just add the module:
> gutenprint-5.2.6-x86_64-1.xzm
> hplip-3.11.3a-x86_64-1.xzm
> kernel-firmware-20110814git-noarch-1.xzm
> sane-1.0.22-x86_64-2.xzm
all on the folder /modules and activate it (because I dont know which specific modules that will be used). So, after a reboot, I tried again on CUPS my printer driver are available.

For print jobs I guess there is no problem, just a few features like head cleaning and / or selftest printing sometimes does not work (I'm not sure why).

And some there that really does not work like hp deskjet 3000 printer and Epson T20E.
