I have installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS a few days before. Now I want to print some file with my Epson L220 Inkjet All-in-One printer. Ubuntu automatically adds the printer, but unable to print any text(.txt file) or PDF file. enter image description here The printer simply bypasses the A4 paper with no printing on the paper. Why this happens and what is the way out form this problem? NOTE: I HAVE PREVIOUSLY POSTED A QUESTION ON THIS TOPIC, BUT THERE IS NO SOLUTION, THAT IS WHY I POST MY QUARRY AGAIN.

  • Download the drivers from this site and open with Software Install. – Vijay Apr 3 at 13:24
  • From this site, I download the deb file epson-printer-utility_1.0.2-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb , and open via Software Center, which goes to the new page "Epson Printer Utility for Linux" , and install it . But still print is not done – Bapi Saha Apr 3 at 13:43
