Epson Aculaser C1700 drivers for Linux

Postby Jackie78 » Sat Sep 08, 2012 9:22 am


I have searched a whole while for Linux drivers for my new color laser printer Epson Aculaser C1700. For your information, I finally found a solution, the following files for the Xerox Phaser 6000B work fine for me: ... ived=false

I hope this will help people using Linux Mint who own the same printer and have trouble finding suitable drivers.

Please pay attention: the driver is for arch i386. If you have amd64 platform you need to install some more i386 libraries with the following command:

Code: Select all

user@mypc:/home/user$ sudo apt-get install libcupsimage2:i386  libstdc++6:i386

With other distribution, look at /var/log/cups/error_log and search if there are more missing libraries...
then install them with the :i386 postfix.

After the installation allt will work fine!
Best regards, Davide
