    Re: Epson L200 printer is printing an extra page

    it wasn't clear to me whether you are using the epson drivers

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1671378

    post #1 in the above thread describes how to download the drivers Epson makes available:

    the printer driver comes from Epson's older repository store: Avasys;

    I can find a scanner driver on Epson's newer site: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/se...h/searchModule

    but no printer driver there.........so suggest using the avasys link;

    you could then see if this alternative driver works better for you

    Thanks for reply pdc, but the thread you mention is the one I've used before to install my printer drivers. And the same thread was used to reinstall the drivers in order to solve the strange behavior of the printer and failed.

    Re: Epson L200 printer is printing an extra page

    Update:

    I've found two issues like mine, but with HP printers.

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/19422...print-a-images

    I don't think is a driver bug/problem, epson driver and hp driver are different. Maybe a CUPS bug or an error related to Ubuntu...

    Re: Epson L200 printer is printing an extra page

    I'm having the same issue. On both an HPC6380 inkjet and an HP2100n laserjet. I don't think it's a printer issue, rather an HPLIP or cups issue.

    Can anyone see what's happened? I suspect an 'option' has got turned on by default in a newer version of the hplips or cups. only happens with PDF printing for me.

    Are you using 12.04?
    I really looked for such an option like that, everywhere, but failed...
    Why not cups? It's a program related between hplip and epson driver.

    I'm on 32bit 12.04

    you're right in suggesting this being a cups, not hplip issue, as the problem is experienced beyond hplip...

    I've tested the printer on my Xubuntu 12.04 32 bits without any problems. Later, I'll update Xubuntu and test again.

    Re: Epson L200 printer is printing an extra page

    Update:

    I've installed Ubuntu 12.10 64 bits, installed n10&n11 stylus driver and there is no problem. But an interesting thing:
    go to printers-> double click epson l200->configuration and click "print test page"
    this page is the same "extra page" I have in Ubuntu 12.04, unique difference is the "test page" has some images showing the different colours like magenta, black, blue, green etc just like this http://www.danmaher.com/images/printer1.jpg
    So, the bug is not an "extra page" but an extra "printer test page" without images.

    The bug in launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...9?comments=all
