Looking for epson DX4400 drivers


Hi,
I have recently bought an Epson stylus DX4400 printer;
I want to install it under linux (Mandriva 2007).

Now, epson provides printer drivers through avasys website:
http://www.avasys.jp/english/linux_e/dl_spc.html

The problem is the printer driver download is stopped for maintenance.
So, is there any mirror site where I download drivers for Epson Stylus CX4300/CX4400/CX5500/CX5600/DX4400 ?
or Is there anyone having these drivers?

Thank you in advance.

Hello everyone!

I managed to print with the DX4400, I used the Epson Stylus D68. do NOT use the DX4000 or DX4200 because do NOT work, in fact using those drivers the printer automatically shutdowns, it is maybe a future option to develop an "automatic swiching off" for your printer :-D.

However I didn't manage to get the scanner working even I read in a forum that someone managed to install the scanner driver.

Thank you farslayer for the answer;
I know dx4400 works with D68 driver, but it doesn't work fine;
it wastes too much ink, and printing is slow.

So, as EPSON has its own drivers for DX4400 but these ones aren't downloadable from its site at the moment, I asked for anyone has downloaded them and can send it.

Thank you anyway.

Hello,

I am also looking for those printer drivers for DX4400 and also found the avasys website download section down for maintenance...

Were you able to get those drivers ?

Kind regards
