Epson L120 Doesn't Print with Error: "/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201310w/cups/lib/filt


Hi,

I have searched for some solution to my problem to no avail. Here is what I did toward using an Epson L120 Inkjet:

1) Downloaded an LSB rpm driver from Epson-Seiko website.
2) Did "rpm2txz" *.rpm and it created a *tgz
3) /sbin/installpkg epson*tgz
4) Went to CUPS at localhost:631 installed and tried to print test page.
5) No print. It merely says "/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201310w/cups/lib/filter/epson_inkjet_printer_filter failed"

Am I missing something here? I have tried to link all contents in /opt/epson*/cups/lib/* to same name at /usr/lib. But still it doesn't print.

I have also used the ppd file supplied by the driver package. Still doesn't print.

Does anyone know where to go from here?

Thanks ahead.

mm

Are you a Slackware user? This could be a distro-specific issue. (I've never encountered it in a RPM-based environment.)

Anyway, a different printer model, but perhaps the same solution?

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-...2-start-0.html

Code:
ln -sf /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 /lib64/ld-lsb-x86-64.so.3
It might help if you also report
Code:
ldd /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201310w/cups/lib/filter/epson_inkjet_printer_filter
to check out any required/missing library dependencies.

@ferrare,
Thank you for your immediate reply. It helped my confidence to direct attention into the library issue. Yes I am using Slackware 32bit. What I did was a simple down to earth guesswork. The " ldd " returned the necessary libraries. I wasn't able to satisfy all of it, about 17 libraries called for, I only have fifteen, absent are: "linux-gate.so.1 (0xffffe000)" (I don't know how to deal with this, it goes directly to the memory map) and "libpthread.so.0", although I was confident that /lib/ld-lsb.so.3 was there. So I went directly to copy all Epson libraries in /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201310w/lib to /usr/lib. Installed the printer through localhost:631 and a Test Page printed. I also printed from other application, it did.

I didn't need apply the *gentooforum link you gave me since it dealt with 64bit specific driver; there's no /lib64 folder in my root.

Thanks again.

mm
