I want to use glossy photo paper to get a photo printed. So what I need to do and how do I use this type of paper?
Printer info -
Kodak ESP c315
To be able to make use of features your printer offers you will have to download and install an appropriate driver. Sadly Kodak does not make any Linux drivers.
There is a sourceforge project that offers drivers for Kodak printers:
There you will also find Debian packages including packages for 64-bit Ubuntu for installation. However I have no idea if they install and run nicely, and to what extent your printer will be supported.
Sadly in the usual case (of many other printers) we see that the drivers offered are way behind their proprietary Windows counterparts both in comfort, and in printing quality.
You print just like on other OSes. In your printer settings, set the kind of paper to "Photo paper" (or something like this, it depends on your printer). For using it, you have to print on the glossy side of your photo paper.
