I am running Linux Mint 12 64-bit and confident to use command line but relatively newcomer to Linux Mint, recently got a Kodak ESP C315 printer which is working great on Mac and Windows PC's but for my son and I we both run Linux Mint systems and are no longer able to print.
I've read various forum articles in forums and install notes on the CUPS driver for Kodak in Sourceforge about how to go about installing the driver for the printer but I am still at a loss.
So far I have:
1 - Installed the c2esp_18-4ubuntu1_amd64.deb package from Source forge
2 - Tried adding the printer through System Settings -> Printers and then Adding the printer, which identifies the printer as an Eastman-KODAK-ESP-C315 printer and when clicking Add, within a few seconds responds with Failed to add printer.
3 - Tried adding the printer via the CUPS web gui (http://localhost:631), but whilst it appears to be setup and added as a queue and I send a test print which appears to disappear from the print queue, nothing is being printed at the printer.
I am sure something is being missed, especially in going through the steps to add the printer particularly the step where you enter the connectivity settings (i.e. should it be http://<Printer IP address> or ipp://<Printer IP address> or socket:<Printer IP address>) but so far none of the options I have tried work and am now at a loss as to what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
