Can't install pipslite-1.4.0-5 for an Epson Workforce 610 Printer

I downloaded the .rpm file for pipslite-1.4.0-5 and tried to install it using YaST, but it needs “libgdk-1.2.so.0”. I was given the error "nothing provides libgdk-1.2.so.0 needed by pipslite-1.4.0-5.i386. I am currently running 32-bit OpenSUSE 11.3. Can anybody help me with installing pipslite? I googled libgdk and I notice that it’s in gtk+, but I don’t know how to install that either. Thank you in advance.

So I stopped attempting to use piplite because it’s outdated. Instead, I used the Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R) for Linux. I also downloaded and installed the Workforce 610 driver that supports the Linux Standard base from avasys.com. I now have a new error, stating, “”/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster failed". I am using CUPS to install this printer.

i know you may know this (but maybe not): it is almost always best to
buy hardware known to work well with Linux…and from hardware makers
who support Linux, apparently this maker and printer do not:

Q: Does Epson make drivers for the Unix or Linux platforms?
A: While Epson makes drivers for our products in both Windows and
Macintosh environments, we do not have drivers designed for use with
Unix/Linux platforms.

Third party Unix/Linux solutions for Epson products can be found at
www.epsondevelopers.com.

[QUOTE]

does your openSUSE system correctly identify the printer? you don’t
say which desktop environment you are using so i guess KDE: open
Configure Desktop - Personal Settings, go Peripherals > Printers and
see if your printer is correctly identified, of if you can spin it
up…if it is, the install probably loaded the best driver the open
source folks can make without support, by default.

maybe the printer will work partially, or maybe the scanner function
might work…without the manufacturer helping it is mostly hit or miss
luck…

maybe you can find some hints here (while you wait on a Epson Guru to
drop in):
http://www.google.com/search?q="%2Fusr%2Flib%2Fcups%2Ffilter%2Fpstoraster+failed"

finally, if you ever figure out how to use it with openSUSE (or any
other Linux) you might consider sharing that info with others though
the Hardware Compatibility List----you can feed info to, or access
present data via http://wiki.opensuse.org/Portal:Hardware

unfortunately, your hardware has not yet been recorded therein…

next time you might consider a brand that supports Linux, see

When I tried printing on 11.3 rc1, I tried installing pipslite, as I had in 11.2, and I couldn’t because of dependencies. Btw, I use also an Epson, different model. Then I found epson-inkjet-printer-escpr and tried that. After some trial and error I found it needed libjpeg6, so after I installed it I could print fine.
Now, a few weeks later I come home after being away for work, with my laptop ready with a newly installed 11.3, and the same setup as rc1, and I get the same error, “/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster failed” Some fiddling around, trying to install some packages, I finally get something out of my printer with the test print: A completely black page!
There is something wrong with cups or so in 11.3, I am not the only one, I searched for the problem and find more opensuse users with the same problem, and I think all connected to this “/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster failed”.

Please, take these things serious, don’t start with this about the right printer, Epson has always been good to me in Linux, and looking to other users in this forum, there are many more who have problems since they installed or upgraded to 11.3, all with different brand printers.

I won’t be able to try to much since I will be away from home again in the next few weeks, but hope this will get solved soon.

perhaps someone of you with these problems should document it in a bug
report (asking for help here does nothing toward fixing a software
code problem–if in fact it is fixable without Epson’s assistance)

maybe a bug exists already–the first step to making a report is
checking to see if one already exists…if it does i think it might
be helpful if all of you make a comment with your hardware/software
mix and symptoms…

see: http://wiki.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports

if a bug exists, or you begin one, please return here and provide a
link for followers, finding this thread via (say) google to add their
comments…

If I could comment solely on whether Epson makes linux drivers; (and one for this printer);

if one goes to the Epson Japan site; the Workforce 610 is listed

All-in-Ones (Multifunction Inkjet Printers) | AVASYS CORPORATION

and here is the link for the Workforce 610

Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R) for Linux | AVASYS CORPORATION

there do seem to be printing issues surfacing in 11.3

I checked yesterday, it was already reported, and I just added my name and that it also applies for me.
