I'm on the latest ubuntu iteration, 13.10 I believe, and I cant find any drivers for my printer.

When i tried to use the generic drivers it just prints out symbols and when i try to use other epson drivers it will print in weird colors.

So my question is this, are there ways to get the drivers for Ubuntu or will I just have to use windows whenever I want to print something?

Its an Epson xp-410

it is looking to see what driver is installed;

click on this link localhost:631/printers/ looks to see what printers are recognised on your system: is the Epson mentioned there?

I see the drivers listed here

are you using 32bit mint please? If you don't know, type [quote]uname -a /quote] in a terminal and hit the enter key: How do I check if I have a 32-bit or a 64-bit OS?
