Driver for Epson Aculaser M1200

Can you please provide the driver for my Epson AcuLaser M1200 Printer. Suse does not have one. Thank you Regards

First, welcome to these Forums.

We are openSUSE users like you and like you sometimes have problems related to it. Thus there are these forums to ask questions in the hope that other members here can help. As said everybody here is a user like you and as such volunteer to look at new threads and if they can spend some of there spare time to help.

Thus asking to “provide” a driver is a bit harsh. But you could ask for help finding a way to get your printer going. Maybe another member has done this.

My first idea would be to ask Google. I did with

Epson AcuLaser M1200 Linux driver

and it pointed to some Epson URLs where the word “Linux driver” show. Did you allready check there?

With these entry-level printers, it’s never really clear what printer
language is supported. In a spec I found for the M1200, the language was
escribed as “host-based”. Which means absolutely nothing.

Try to look in your docs if you see a mension of PostScript, Pcl, gdi or
similar. Tell us what you find.

PS: this is not an openSUSE support line, just a place for users like you
and me to hang out and exchange info, experiences and opinions.
“Please provide”… grin.

PPS: Even if this WAS a support service, you don’t ask openSUSE to provide a
Linux driver for your Epson laser printer. You ask Epson, of course.

:slight_smile: Don’t worry, we’ll get the beast working…


Any time things appear to be going better, you have overlooked
something.

Visit Avasys website. It provides Epson Printers for Linux drivers.

when I look at this epson website

Laser Printers | AVASYS CORPORATION

I see a driver listed for the M2000 but not for the M1200 so one can only assume that the driver for the M2000 may work for the M1200

similarly when one goes to the OpenPrinting site

Printers by Manufacturer | OpenPrinting - The Linux Foundation

regarded as a core source for open source printing resources,

the M1200 is again NOT listed;

some of the very cheapest lasers use proprietary software; this printer might be in this category
