cups - epson d68 driver missing - Wolvix -equivalent printer?

I'm running wolvix 1.1.0 and there is no Epson D68 in the cups configuration (there is for Zenwalk which is very close to wolvix) Does any one out there know which (if any) driver will work a d68 or how I can get a d68 driver for wolvix?

epson d68 driver missing

In suse 10.3 my driver is missing too and that is fore the Epson D92
and than I use the driver fore the d68 and it works
So if there is another driver fore A Epson in you,re system try it and test the printer output and if it is a Postscript printer try the Adobe site

good luck

Thanks ronlau9

Thanks for your reply,
Sadly the wolvix cups has NO D series drivers at all. (I've tried most other Epson drivers to no avail). It's not an important issue to me - I use Zenwalk for my day to day work - but it's a shame for others trying to use wolvix which is otherwise a good distro.
Having said that, I had no luck with the D68 in Linux Mint KDE either. The only distro I've found that works 100% (for my purposes)is good old zenwalk 5.0. - light, fast, and stable.
Thanks anyway.


driver, printer
