I'm unable to get a WF-2010 printer working with Kubuntu 12.04 (using the KDE printer settings). I've downloaded the amd64 drivers from Epson and installed them with dpkg. However, nothing much happens after install: a directory is created in opt but no additional drivers are available. I can manually unzip the PPD file I need, and install it, but I'm unable to print a test page (stays in the stopped state).

How am I supposed to install these Epson drivers?


The driver/setup do not work correctly if /opt is a symlink. By changing my layout of my disk and making /opt a normal folder the install and printer worked without problem.

  • could you please clarify your answer here? (and perhaps you should accept it if it solved your problem?) – Zanna Sep 23 '16 at 7:01
  • Was your /opt a mounted NTFS partition? – Anwar Oct 28 '16 at 12:43
  • No, it was not a NTFS mount. It was a link to another hard disk, ext4 I think. – edA-qa mort-ora-y Oct 28 '16 at 14:36
