driver voor Epson R245
« Gepost op: 2007/01/14, 18:59:06 »
Hay iedereen,
Is een tijdje geleden maar ben met schilderwerken bezig thuis (moet ook eens gebeuren :)
Heb probleempje met nieuwe printer van een vriendin. Ik heb op haar nieuwe pc dual boot xp/ubuntu 6.10 geïnstalleerd. Alles verloopt vlot, maar die nieuwe epson R245 wordt blijkbaar niet ondersteund (er is wel connectie met de printer, maar het enige dat gebeurt is het papier dat leeg door de printer draait, geen afdruk. Spijtig genoeg, onder xp werkt ie wel. Hebben julie advies hierover ;)

6.3  pipslite-install

To launch the tool, from command line, execute the following command
# pipslite-install
To generate a PPD file, the printer is required to be connected to the
host, and turned on, otherwise, an error message will display and
Continue button will be disabled.
If an printer is connected and turned on, Continue button will be
enabled and after it is pushed, a PPD file will be generated and
another message will display informing that the file was created at
'/usr/share/cups/model'.

[Privilege]

root priviledge to be able to use it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7  Handling Instructions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you print using Photo Image Print System for CUPS, you may
encounter the problems listed below.

1. PostScript cannot be output in Japanese.
2. Print result differs from the document displayed on the application
you use.
    e.g.) A line feed is inserted where it should not be.
3. Vertical lines are printed on the left side of printouts.

This occurs when the rendering program of CUPS (which converts printing
documents into image data that Photo Image Print System can use)
converts PostScript files into image data, and it cannot be avoided with
this product.

We appreciate your understanding.
For your information, aforementioned problems have been found in CUPS
version 1.1.14.

***End of file
maar over het .tar.gz bestand wordt blijkbaar niet gesproken. Ik heb gelezen dat voor een printer een .ppd  betand nodig is maar verder rijkt mijn kennis niet. Blijkbaar is de installatie van een printer in linux ofwel heel simpel (wordt direct gevonden) of iets ingewikkelder. Kunnen julie mij een beetje op weg helpen a.u.b.

Om dat rpm bestand te kunnen installeren moet je eerst alien hebben:
sudo apt-get install alien
Met alian wordt een .rpm (Red Hat Pakket Manager) bestand omgezet naar een .deb bestand.

De r240 driver is geschikt voor deze printer.
