Epson Stylus C48


Hi there,

The Epson Stylus c48 printer is not listed in cups driver list, so I have set the closest model which is c46.

Printer works but is very slow, eg 30 minutes to print 2 sheets of text.

Has anyone got a solution for this.

Mike

It looks like you need to install the gutenprint driver package. That should give you the driver you need.

Thanks for the help,

unfortunately that is the one I am currently using already, with the slow printing problem :-

gutenprint5.0

I will check for newer version
