Using Intrepid.

Epson D92 printer won't work.

Any ideas?

Can you post the output of
lspci | grep epson? To do this go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal. Type the code into the box that shows up and press enter. Then copy the text and post here.

john@john-desktop:~$ lspci | grep epson

shows nothing. But the text editor knows the printer is there.


john@john-desktop:~$ lspci

produces:

Appears to show printer as Stylus D88+ but it is a D92.

That might be the problem. Your system sees the printer as an older model. Try unplugging it from the usb port, and plug it into a different one. Then try to print after it auto installs. Sometimes printer manufactures use the same chipset for more than one printer.

Tried that. No luck.

I unplugged the printer and restarted the computer and lsusb still thinks the printer is a Stylus D88+.

Go to system > administration > printing. Right click on the printer and choose properties. Go to make and model. Change to your printer model.

Thanks.

I solved it by going to http://127.0.0.1:631/printers/

then modify printer

and set the printer driver to: Epson Stylus D68 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.0-rc1

That also works! Same thing, except it is a web interface. If the problem is solved, please close the forum.:)
