I'm trying to install a printer that is on the network in my work place. It's an Epson LP-S5000. Trying to install it through the usual method does not work as the driver doesn't appear to be available in the list. I've also tried to install it by using the ppd that I downloaded from the Epson website, but this hasn't worked either, it just gives me this error:
Printer 'LP-S5000' requires the 'pstolps5000.sh' program but it is not currently installed. Please install it before using this printer.
I've tried to install this, but every time I try in terminal it comes up with the error:
ERROR: pstolps5000.sh: Un-known paper size
After googling this issue, I found this link In CUPS GUI config: Error: 'Epson-LP-S5500-2' requires the 'pstolps5500.sh' program but I can which it , which passes you onto a how-to guide on how to (hopefully) overcome install issues with this specific printer, but it, again, gives me an error. I have installed everything that the link tells me to but as soon as I get round to installing the thing and type the
./configure command in I get the error:
configure: error: *** 'cups-config' missing, please install CUPS or fix your $PATH ***
which is where I get stuck. I have no idea how (or if it's even possible) to over come this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm certainly no expert when it comes to computing, but I'm willing to give anything a try.
I'm trying to install the Epson LP-S5000, which is a networked printer, on Ubuntu 12.10 but I keep getting errors at various stages.
Thanks in advance. Any help would be much appreciated.
