I have bought an Epson L220 printer and would like to install the drivers onto my HP Laptop.
How do I get and install it on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (amd64 architecture)?
You need to install the drivers for the printer. This can be found on the Epson website.
Please go to:
.deb package files with your favourite package manager, e. g. GDebi or Software Center (Ubuntu 16.04 or later only) or on the command-line:
sudo dpkg -i /path/to/pacakge.deb ... sudo apt install -f
As a side note, the best way to find if a printer is compatible is to search OpenPrinting.org. I found the Epson L220 printer there, and saw that it was compatible. I then searched for the recommended driver on Google which pointed me to the Epson Linux Driver website.
The steps to get this working on ubuntu are simple
Printersin your start menu.
Connect to internet, then add the printer in System Settings -> Printers.
The driver should be downloaded automatically.
If it does not, post a comment. I will tell you how to install it manually.
