Hi. I have been struggling to find printing software for an Epson ActionPrinter 4000 in OpenSuSE 11.1 which can produce sharp letters in the printing and not have other problems. Via OpenPrinting database - Printer Listings on the Internet (an) Omni printer driver(s) is suggested for this printer. I installed the packages Omni-0.9.2-1.i386.rpm and OmniEpsonVendor-cups-0.9.2-1.i386.rpm and their dependencies via commands of the form “zypper in PackageName.rpm” while connected to the Internet using a fast Internet connection in a friend’s mobile home. I worked with “drivers” which could be found via YaST2 (Yet another Software Tool 2), System, Printer, selecting the line for the particular printer I am using, clicking on “Edit,” then under “Driver” entering something like “24 pin” and maybe more text, and then clicking “Show Matching Drivers.” As in YaST2, Hardware, Printer, I use the word “driver” very loosely in this posting; actually I may have been working with PostScript Printer Description (ppd) files in YaST2. With the drivers labeled “Epson 24-Pin Series, 1.3” and “Oki 24-Pin Series, 1.3” the printing was readable; but the printed letters were not sharp, even with a relatively new print ribbon. A driver at least labeled “24-pin 80 Col” was very successful in Fedora-Core-3 (FC3) Linux with this printer.–It might have also had “KS_24_pin_80_Col” in the file Generic-24-pin_80_Col.xml associated with this “driver” in FC3 Linux; but I cannot be certain of that. In OpenSuSE-11.1 Linux I found a similar driver labeled “KS 24-pin 80 Col, CUPS + omni[omni/KS/KS-KS_24_pin_80_Col-omni-cups.ppd.gz].” But with this driver and one of “Epson 24-pin 80 Col, CUPS + omni[omni” or “downloaded/Epson/Epson-Epson_24_pin_80_Col-omni-cups.ppd.gz]”, in probably /var/log/cups/error_log I found a record of some events while a test page was attempted to be printed. There I could see that the executable file CUPSToOmni could not “locate” the required shared-object files with names of the form “lib_A_Shared_Object_File.so”. I followed the two-command solution to enable CUPSToOmni to “locate” such a lib file that was posted at https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=429345; in my case that problem was gratefully eliminated by in a terminal program as a superuser by typing the commands “/usr/lib/ghostscript/Omni >> /etc/ld.so.conf” and then “ldconfig”. I’m not sure if a restart of my computer was necessary after entering those commands or not. But the result with attempting to print using the KS…-labeled driver in OpenSuSE 11.1 was that I could obtain sharp-looking letters and/or digits of gibberish when attempting to print a test page and just form feeds or blank pages when attempting to print a portion of a text file via the text editor Kate. With the choice “Epson 24-pin 80 Col, CUPS +omni[omni/Epson/Epson-Epson_24_pin_80_Col-omni-cups.ppd.gz]” the result was sharp-looking letters in the printing. However the beginning of a document was not printed.–The printing began further down the first page of text in the document, leaving just blank lines on the top sections of sheets of paper. Of course this is unacceptable for practical use. This was the case when printing a .dvi file using 1) the combination of dvips and lpr and 2) a .txt file from within the text editor Kate. So I assume this phenomenon is associated with the Omni driver I chose to use with this Epson printer. How should I enable the printing to instead begin at the beginning of a document and on the top section of a sheet of paper, of course leaving a more normal-sized section of blank space as a top margin? Can this problem be eliminated from outside the driver by, for example, changing some driver option or perhaps inputting a datum used by the driver? Thanks in advance for help.
