Epson C70 on Debian


Hi all

I am trying to install the Epson C70, using debian 2.6.15-1-k7 #2. I apt-get cups and installed the printer via the CUPS web page.

I have set the printer as default and allowed my user account, all programs that can print have the Epson showing as default. But when I try and print the job sits in the queue forever.

I have read through documents and google searches, but have not found anything.


please help!

more anoying, I booted windows and it worked first time!!!! arrr!!

i have tried removing everything printer(ish) on Linux and reinstalling:

usually all i need is :

apt-get install cupsys

and it installs all programs! then add printer through cups using internet browser! the job queue shows that requests are being sent to the printer, which is contected via USB, but nothing ever o/p on paper.

so i thought it might be drivers, so:

apt-get install cupsys-driver-gimpprint

this installs a load of ppd files, one i notice for epson c70!

i am absolutely stuck? Please help
