CUPS - What driver to use for an Epson L355 printer


Hi!

I want to set up an Epson L355 printer on my kubuntu 14.04 computer. I have to use jetdirect so I set socket://ip:9100 as the URL but then I have to select the manufacturer and model. I see a bunch of Epson printers but none is the one I have... what would be the closest one I could use instead? Or can I get the PPD somewhere?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

you should be able to extract the ppd file from one of the driver bundles at:
