Printing problem

Postby parsixrob » Wed Jan 06, 2010 7:27 pm

Hi all, setup my USB Epson R200 in Parsix 3.0r1 (Kev) and change all teh options but nothing will print, you send stuff to the printer and zap nothing , no error messages either, printer always shown as idle.

This also happened when i used Sidux but not in Mint 8

Did you set it up using the Cups-Localhost-Tool ?

Your R200 should work with no problems I use the R300 Unfortunately I can't remember how I set it up at the moment. You may need to reinstall cups. check out this link it may help
