New source for Drivers for Epson SX515W

Postby aSystemOverload on Sat Feb 23, 2013 5:00 pm

Hi,

Five years ago I installed drivers from http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do for my Epson SX515W Wireless All-In-One and it was fairly pain-free. Now I go to the site and it says it has discontinued the Linux download service and points you to Epson's site. The Epson site has no Linux drivers listed. I have sent an email, but I'm not hopeful.

Does anyone have any alt sources for a suitable driver?

I'm running Mint 14 Cinnamon on a Acer Aspire V3-771

OpenPrinting: Drivers for Epson SX515W

like you, if I go the Epson linux page

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

there seem to be no drivers supplied for your printer

If I go to OpenPrinting, a good spot for Open Source Printing resources........... and enter Epson SX ......I get the nearest to your printer, a reference for the SX510W

http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Eps ... lus_SX510W

it actually lists a 515W open source driver.......that should get you going?
