I have an epson l120 printer and have installed it successfully. It prints test pages using epson utility app and nozzle checks are fine. When I try to print a pdf or document file my printer doesnt do anything but my laptop says that printing is done.

Most of these problems are because your laptop does not have the corrent / no driver

I assume this is correct: https://www.epson.com.ph/Support/Printers/Ink-Tank-Printers/L-Series/Epson-L120/s/SPT_C11CD76401?review-filter=Mac+OS+X+10.11.x

Choose Linux (maybe this link works)... Download the latest deb file and once downloaded write: sudo apt install ./downloads/*.deb # you might want to replace the *

If already installed try to reconfigure the printer (remove it out of the list and add again, make sure it doesn't add automatically. You might have 2 printers then, just use this one you have set up byself)

  • this deb file is already installed. Aug 21, 2021 at 10:53
  • make sure you enable this driver for the printer (or reconfigure the printer might help)
