Installing Epson Stylus C62 [solved]

Recommended Posts

Heya..

I just installed Mandriva 2008.1 today and so far love it, coming from ubuntu.

 

There is one teething problem I am having with it though.

I can't set up my printer.

 

It is a Epson Stylus C62.

 

I chose it from the printer lists and everything and the printer is connected via the parallel port.

But it won't print.

What option shall I pick for where it is plugged in?

Since it is in the parallel port.

 

Thanks

Parallel port would be LPT1

 

I assume you're installing this through CUPS?

 

I always do any printer administration through the CUPS panel itself, rather than any OS configuration tool. I use http://localhost:631 and set it up from there. It has worked for me.

Ok, I'll try that.

From your PM, I understand that it still won't print.

 

When you go to the CUPS menu (link I gave above, assuming CUPS is installed), does it see your printer?

 

If it does, that's good.

 

When you get to the step where it asks for a driver, is there an exact match for your printer model?

 

And, I have to ask: Is the printer turned on/plugged in? :P

Well, at first - it didn't detect the printer.

And it was turned on and plugged into the parallel port.

But - I didn't realise to restart my computer to get it to work.

So now, it's working.

 

Thanks so much for helping Liquidzoo
