Adding Epson WP-4525 fax printer.

Postby Fotis_Greece » Fri Jun 14, 2013 4:07 pm

Hello dear friends,
In the past I used only HP printers and by installing HPLIP and just fine, adding the printer and the fax-printer (send the fax drirectly from PC) was easy.
Now tha I have bought the Epson WP-4525 I have managed quite easily to add it as a printer (installing from epson linux drivers epson-inkjet-printer-201113w_1.0.2-1lsb3.2_i386.deb) and works fine. Also scanning is easy with Vuescan and no drivers are required. The printer in networked with ip: 192.168.5.104

However I want also to send faxes directly from the PC so i installed the epson-pc-fax_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb driver.
When trying to add the fax printer (Administration-->Printers--> add printer I can see in the left to choose device Epson Fax but the forward button is grayed out.I guess I should type something, uri..
Can you have a look nd help out.
Here is a screenshot

It wants you to enter something along the line of the suggestions in the panel. What you have at present is not the correct format (apparently).

What is written there it comes by default, i didn't type anything
Chatting with Epson support revealed that they provide drivers for linux but no support at all
for info the printer URI that is working fine for printing is lpd://192.168.5.104:515/PASSTHRU

When trying lpd://192.168.5.104/epsonfax it just reinstalls the printer second time
