KODAK ESP 3250 printer


Is this printer compatible with Linux? It's listed at http://www.openprinting.org/printer/...Kodak-ESP_3250, where they recommend the c2esp driver--but I thought Linux drivers are "at "kernel-level," as one LQ memeber put it.

Hi bluegospel, Welcome to LQ. The database says it works partially. What is provided by the "driver" is actually a ppd and a CUPS filter. The best thing to do is download it, and give it a try.

Good luck. ;-)

I did buy the printer but I've not yet tried it on my Linux box. I have other Linux issues I have to work through before messing around with the printer.

Kodak ESP 3250

Hi,

I'm thinking about getting a Kodak ESP 3250 will it work with Lubuntu 13.04 I did a check at http://www.openprinting.org/printer/...Kodak-ESP_3250 and it said "Color inkjet printer, works Partially" dose that mean it won't print or what? Any help would be great.

Thanks
Jack

Hi jmdlcar, works partially usually means it doesn't function up to the devices capabilities. Best bet is to find one that is supported fully in the database unless you're up for a challenge and some elbow grease to get the functions that are available working.

Good luck. ;-)

You're welcome, HP is usually pretty well supported.

Good luck. ;-)
