Frustrating Printing Issues

Postby Encerspay on Thu Jan 24, 2013 12:00 am

Alrighty. So I'm running Linux Mint 13 MATE 64 bit on an HP G60-635DX laptop.

I have an Epson Stylus Printer, and it works fine on Windows 7. But when I print via Linux Mint (usually LibreOffice Writer, but also websites),
it comes out with the colors all funky.
A picture of a printed document will soon be provided.
Pllllllllllleasse help.
Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The printer is an EPSON Stylus NX200 printer and I'm not sure as to what drivers I have. I'm looking into that now, though.

Epson NX200 ........Epson drivers

Postby pdc_2 on Tue Jan 29, 2013 11:21 pm

so this device is both scanner and printer;

http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/searc ... ch/?OSC=LX

thumbnail shows what one gets when one enters NX200 in the Epson site

printer driver is the ESC/P-R Driver (generic driver)

as you are running 64bit, you need the epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.2.2-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb and as you click to download, gdebi installer should offer to install: let it;

_________________________________________

for the scanner; from the above, you need to

1) install the DATA package first: iscan-data_1.21.0-1_all.deb ......it's at the BOTTOM of the list ..............

2) then install the CORE package: iscan_2.29.1-5~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb

note the ltd7 detail: ltd7 is for newer kernels; like yours

___________________________________________

that should get you up and running: let us know how it goes
