Smile driver for epson wf-3620; excluding turbo printing


does anyone know how to get driver for epson wf-3620?
It is not in the drop down menu in the printer application.
I currently have turbo printing app but beleive i will have to pay after 30 days.
I do not understand this CUPS thing, am new to Linux.
I have linux mint 18.3.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org.

Linux drivers for Epson printers can be obtained from here...
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/se...search/?OSC=LX
Download the appropriate (DEB) package for you system eg epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.6.22-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb, and install it with your package manager. There is a note on the download page about making sure that lsb (necessary files and dependencies for the Linux Standards Base) is installed first. That can be done as follows...

Quote:
Ubuntu:
Code:
apt-get install lsb
Once the epson driver package is installed as well, you can then proceed with configuring CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) to work with your printer model.

BTW, some background reading for you about what CUPS is....
