Epson stylus CX3900 cannot print

Postby magen_sabayon » Tue Oct 23, 2007 19:34


I'm running Sabayon 3.4. and an Epson Stylus CX 3900. Unable to get it to print. Scanner function is fine, loaded iscan via portage- works well both with Sane and epson native program. However cannot print.

Checked epson website which directs u to Avys but only scnner driver offered not the printer driver.

CUPS recognises the printer but driver is not listed. Please help.

I googled it and found the following page: ... lus_CX3900

which recommends the CUPS CX3805 driver. According to a Ty Tower Australia posting on that page, he installed the driver (CX3805? CX3900?) from the Avasys site (see link given on above-mentioned page) and it prints OK, albeit slower than under Windows.
