Linux driver for Epson printer


I have a Epsom XP-430 printer that worked fine in ubuntu 15.10 but I cannot get it to work since I upgraded to ubuntu 16.04. None of the linux drivers I tried from Epson's website will work with the printer now.

JDWheel,

A similar tale of woe for other users of 16.04 and Epson printers:

There is a workaround apparently. See post #34 on here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...b/+bug/1536353

Instead of vi you can use nano in Terminal:

You may need to install it first.

Code:
sudo apt-get install nano
Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

hm,interesting problem and it's solution. Once I wanted to buy a new printer for my mother, who works in the office. I had not so much money but still wanted to buy a practical and quality printer. My friend gave me the advice to look over this website www.mrdepot.ca where I could find a bunch of office supplies. These guys offer high-quality printers and cartridges for a good price and with free delivery. On their website, u can find all printers from big companies. My mum was absolutely pleased with the printer that I bought her! If u want, u can check this site for more info, bro! I wish u good luck!

It has always been against LQ rules to necropost without adding new useful information. In addition, it has been a well observed behaviour that posts like DavidMorris are usually a prelude to posting a spamlink later. He has already been banned, by the way.
