I am working with Pardus for a month now. Solved all problems i run into, untill now.

I have an "All in one printer" from Epson. Type:  Epson Stylus Photo RX560 and i can't get it to work (as far as my Linux knowledge is reaching)

I have tried the gutenprint stuff, from the packagemanager of Pardus. Then tried to configure it with Tasma, but this does not work properly.

I have searched over the internet and found a site called:  http://www.avasys.jp/english/linux_e/dl_spc.html

This is a website with specific drivers for Epson printers. According to the website my all in one device is supported.

Question: What steps do i need to take to install the driver from this website into Pardus?

I am using Pardus 2007.3

Please help me along,

Kind regards, Maupy

I really don't know much about printers but you should try copying the ppd file to /usr/share/cups/model/ directory. then restart cups service using service manager and try adding your printer from tasma.

Also this site may be useful: http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Epson-Stylus_Photo_RX585

Thank's for your reply jnmbk.

I't worth the try.

Now on the avasys website their are 2 files. One ending on .rpm and one ending on .tar.gz

I searched the forum and have learned that Pardus does not use an rpm package manager but PiSi.

With this knowledge i downloaded the .tar.gz and unpacked these onto my harddisk.

Now i'm puzzling what to do, but first need a good night sleep (long day at work...)
