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)?

  • go to "printers" options, it finds printer, it searches and finds the drivers, click forward

You need to install the drivers for the printer. This can be found on the Epson website.

Please go to:

  1. Epson Linux Printer Search or Epson Linux Driver Support.
  2. Search for the Epson L220 printer.

  1. Click on the download link.

  1. Click on the accept link at the bottom of the page to say you agree to the terms.

  1. Click on the download button for your distro
  • You will need the files that end with amd64.deb Notice that it has _amd64.deb at the end, click on the download link
  1. Make sure you do this for all the files available in step 3 above.

  2. Install the .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.

  • Epson Linux Driver link will show , Page not found .

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.
