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.
1i have a similar problem printing pdf files but on a HP printer.printing the same files from libre office does not have this problem.ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS.you might want to update your question with more details.– trond hansenAug 21, 2021 at 3:09
What version of Ubuntu? Is the program you used to print the test page an Ubuntu program?– DavidAug 21, 2021 at 6:32

Most of these problems are because your laptop does not have the corrent / no driver
I assume this is correct:
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)– france1Aug 28, 2021 at 10:24
