Today I installed my brand new printer^Wmultifunction device: Epson Stylus DX4000. 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.
