Installing wireless epson xp-800. What driver?

Post by pottzie » Sun Sep 04, 2016 7:34

Trying to get a Epson xp-800 wireless printer going, and the drivers are either .rpm or.deb.
http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Eps ... 800_Series

Any way to make it work with Sabayon? Sabayon CUPS guide gives instructions for CUPS 1.5.2, system has CUPS 2.1.4, and doesn't have a way to get PPD file, as far as I see.

Do you have this installed? https://packages.sabayon.org/show/epson ... 5,standard

If that is installed and doesn't give you want you need, I found this on the gentoo forum for a similar epson printer:
I downloaded the x86_64 driver as an rpm from here https://www.openprinting.org/printer/Ep ... 100_Series
I converted the rpm to a tar and installed (it installs in /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201204w)
I copied the ppd file to /usr/share/cups/model
So perhaps try that but with this: https://www.openprinting.org/printer/Ep ... 800_Series

net-print/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr worked like a champ! My printer is an xp-800, the drop down list didn't show it, but had an 810. Works great! Thanks!
