I am running Ubuntu 11.10 and am new to Linux. I have this great Epson Stylus Photo 1400 printer which I love because it prints great quality photos and furthermore it can do wide format. But since I ditched windows and went with ubuntu I haven't been able to print to my epson. (my hp deskjet works fine though)
When i first plugged in the epson to my laptop it 'found' the new hardware and seemed to install it but wouldn't print to it. I have searched for other drivers and tried them but to no avail. Found one on the epson site - epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.2.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb - but it didn't work either. the printer shows up in my hardware list and the print job shows up in the queue, but nothing ever prints.
Does anybody know why this is happening? Remember I am new to linux, so is there something I'm missing?
Thanks in advance.
