CUPS printing with EPSON stylus PHOTO RX580
 
Hi all,

I just got a new printer, and cups 1.1.23. Adding a new printer went fine, until I had to pick a driver. I saw RX500, RX600, and RX Series in the list, but no 580. So I figured I'd just give RX500 a try, then RX 600. With each driver, I tried printing a test page, but all I got was a ton of blank pages, and a few pages with ascii characters.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Help...please?

I looked at the supported printer in Gutenprint but did not see yours.

You can try asking in the gutenprint project's forums:

Solved. The answer is gutenprint 5.1.3, and a restart of CUPS.
