Parallel port and Epson LX-300

Postby vfontanela on Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:05 am

Hello, everybody, I'm new in the Linux Mint world, actually I have just installed it and I'm having a great time with it.

But I cannot install my printer. It is a Epson LX-300, I know it sound really pre historic but I use it a lot.

The problems I have are:
My mother board doesn't have a parallel port, so long time ago I bought a generic PCI card that works in Windows but only after installing the driver supplied by the manufacturer (Windows doesn't recognize it immediatelly).

So I don't even know if Mint has recognized the port itself and I don't know how to get this information.

When I go to "Printers" and then "Local" it says there isn't any local printer installed.

Well, I will really appreciate any help given.

Thanks a lot.
