11.2 upgrade to 11.3 - Epson printer broken


I have an Epson Stylus Photo PX710W. It worked fine in opensuse 11.2, but I’ve now done a fresh install of opensuse 11.3 and I can’t get the printer to work. I set it up as for 11.2, so I’m sure it should just work.

CUPS job page says:
“/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr/cups/lib/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper failed”

and CUPS error log says:
PID 1294 (/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr/cups/lib/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper) stopped with status 127!

While the scanner also isn’t working, I think this is a separate issue as the CUPS log seems to suggest it is connecting to the printer, + I’m using network and usb connection.

Any suggestions?



Did you find a solution to your problems?

I had to install version 5.2.5 of gutenprint, which can be found here:
Driver: gutenprint | OpenPrinting - The Linux Foundation



Ah, sweet. Opensource driver at last. Works a treat now. Cheers :slight_smile:
