Epson DX5000 Printer Help Please [ SOLVED ]
« on: October 05, 2013, 08:44:57 AM »
Hi All,

I have the above printer and am having a lot of trouble trying to get VSIDO to see it. I have tried searching but am unable to find an answer. I had this problem on Crunchbang but it was sorted out by using
Code: [Select]
apt-get install -y cb-meta-printer-support
unfortunately it did not work here
Help required please
Cheers :D

First do


Code: [Select]
aptitude update
aptitude install cups cups-client


Then start the service


Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/init.d/cups start


Open iceweasel and go to this exact url


Quote
http://localhost:631/


If an error, try this


Quote
usermod -a -G lpadmin YOUR_USERNAME


Then find your printer, and install the driver :)


You are welcome :)
