I have installed Mint 14 with KDE and I really love it. I have tried driver install instructions from three differant sites, nothing works. MY latest atempt resulted in a "Printer is busy" notice in CUPS, but it was idle./; I have tried so many things I'm not sure what is installed or not. How can I tell?? Also has anyone had any luck with this printer? Thanks in advance for you help
thanks so much for the reply, I have spent yet another night trying to get to work. It is an Epson Workforce 840, all in one printer, connected to 192.168.1.100. Running linux mint 14, 64bit. Also is there any way to see what is intalled, and or clean it up. I have tried 4 or 5 installations: Open printing. dwl drivers from Epson and nothing works. This is starting to get really time consuming and I know there is a way, somehow. Thanks again for the reply.
Thanks but I have already tried that 4 or 5times, it is a link to the Epson download page. I think I have tried every possible combination and I still can't print? Arg.........I just keep getting no responce,printer busy( it is Idle), or no printer....Also what is the correct syntax for entering the printer address. Thanks again
