Problems printing with Epson Stylus SX215


I have an Epson Stylus SX215. Fedora 14 recognizes it as SX210.

No problem, I can change the driver..the problem, is, thath with SX210 driver, or SX215, when try to print, printer, starts to take papers, and throw it fast without print anything, and I have to stop the printer with the On/Off button.

Printer worked fine 3 weeks ago under Debian 5, but I can get it working under Guadalinex (ubuntu based), or Fedora 14, with the behaviour explained before.

Descripción: EPSON Epson Stylus SX210
Ubicación: casiopea
Controlador: Epson Stylus SX215 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.6 (color, dúplex)
Conexión: usb://EPSON/Stylus%20SX210
Opciones predeterminadas: job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided
Some idea?

Not sure what driver you are using. list this -->

as the correct driver. There is a rpm package, and install instructions.

Thanks, now works (finnally), but I can't specify if I want to print only as a Draft. I have only :

Plain Paper - Standar
Premium Glossy Photo - Standard
