Today I installed my brand new printer^Wmultifunction device: Epson Stylus DX4000. This is my second printer — few years ago I had Epson Stylus 200 by few weeks.
Device is nicely supported under Linux — printing via CUPS works without problems and there are lot of config parameters if someone want to tweak. Scanner works with SANE — I only had to add one line to
/etc/sane.d/epson.conf to get it recognized:
usb 0x04b8 0x082f
To get it working under Debian following stuff needs to be installed:
- cupsys-driver-gutenprint (driver for printer)
- quiteinsane or kooka (scanning application)
- escputil (utility to printer managment)
Thanks goes to LinuxPrinting team for their website — especially for article about suggested printers.
