Epson StylusSX218 wont work in 10.04


I am using 10.04 and connected a new Epson StylusSX218 that found the drivers and seemed to install OK but when I try to print it just throws all the sheets of paper out with no print. The printer works OK in Vista so it must be a Linux problem. Any ideas please.

I could not find that printer listed at Linux Printing dot org. That doesn't mean it won't work with Linux, but it is indicative that it may be quirky or difficult to set it up.

You might try the driver for the SX215 or even the SX400. Sometimes dropping back works.

Thanks for the reply, I think all the drivers are available but the one I want, I don’t suppose you would know where I could download the drivers for this printer as I have tried going up and down.

My curiosity is up.

I can't even find an "SX 218" on the Epson website.

If it's there, it's either well-hidden or they are trying to forget aobut it.
