I just bought an EPSON Stylus C82 (I use the USB) and am trying to install it on my Slackware v 9
FIrst I tried /usr/share/apsfilter/SETUP
I picked the gimp-print-ijs driver and chose Epson Stylus C80 bec there was no C82. RESULT - Printer did not work.
Next I tried what one of the members suggested: I followed this exactly. RESULT -printer printed garbage when I ran the test: Can you please verify my steps and make any suggestions that might help. - THanks
1.) Download the latest cups (cups-1.1.19-i386-1.tgz)
2.) Install the cups package by doing:# installpkg cups-version.tgz
4.) Go to Linuxprinting.org. download PPD for Epson C82 and save the file to /usr/share/cups/model. The file should be in a model.ppd format, if not, then rename it to my_printer.ppd.
5.) Restart cups by doing # /etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart.
6.) download the latest foomatic-filters.tar.gz (foomatic-filters-3.0.0.tar.gz). Then do the following:
# tar -xzf foomatic-filters-3.0.0.tar.gz
# cp foomatic-rip /usr/lib/cups/filter/
7.) Open your favorite browser and point it to http://localhost:631
8.) Under Administrative Tasks, add your printer. Just follow the directions.
Can you please verify my steps and make any suggestions that might help. THanks
