Epson won't print anymore

Hi all

I have an Epson Stylus D68 Photo Edition, which runs, or did run, perfect with CUPS and Gutenprint 5.0.0-rc1 Stylus C66 driver

After painful hours of compiling and messing about, it worked fine

Until recently, it just won't print anymore

You send a job, to an Idle(Accepting jobs) printer, and check the jobs list, the job that should be printing stays at "Processing" and won't move on.

The red ink light is on, but it can no way be the ink cartridge already. We haven't had it that long, and don't print that often, but shall probably try as a resort.

Another thing to note is in going to the InkJet Tools and you try to check Ink Levels or so, they all give this error:

Also, a while ago, I upgraded to SUSE 10.0 from SUSE 9.1, but the printer worked fine since.

Any ideas guys? This needs to be fixed for homework purposes

Thanks in advance

As a test, replace the ink cartridge. If it works, toss the old one. If it doesn't work, back to square one.
