Printers.

Post by bally1001 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 3:30 am

After moving from Windows, I knew my printer (Epson XP-225) would not be able to communicate with Mint.......Is there a patch available that I can install so that at least I can scan and print at a basic (because Linux won't recognize the Epson software CD) level?......At the moment I have to use a pendrive to transfer whatever to my old W10 device for it to provide this function.........I know one answer would be to buy a compatible printer, but the current one functions perfectly.

Hello, I no longer have an Epson printer but you can down load a driver for it here: [url][http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/searc ... Result/url]

Down load the .deb file.
Good luck.
