    Question Driver for Kodak ESP C310 All-In-One printer?

    Has anyone made any drivers for this printer? I know the a******* at Kodak don't support GNUx (GNU/Linux). I tried the drivers from this page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cupsdriverkodak/. I didn't get very much but the ESP 5200 driver only got the printer to pull the paper down but not print. And I refuse to go back to Windows just for a printer.

    I have the same printer. Wife uses Win7, and I use XP in VirtualBOX to print. I REALLY want to be able to go native as this is a really nice photo printer.

    I have the same printer and I would like to be able to print from my Ubuntu machines. Does anyone have any idea about where to get a driver for this? Thanks for any help...

    the cups driver on sourceforge did not work for me either,,, I have this same printer,,, Looks like I have to email docs to a windows machine,,, I will never buy from kodak again

    EDIT: Since I have WindBLOWS XP installed as a virtual machine within VMWARE, I found that the virtual appliance recognises my printer and with driver installed, it runs flawlessly... it sucks that I must run XP to use my printer though... I guess it will have to do until a linux driver is made for this printer...

    I just bought this model, had problems setting it up so I had a look round the internet and it seems that Kodak do not provide Linux drivers for their printers. There are some third party drivers from sourceforge but they seem only partly functional - printing but no scanning or wifi, so I took it back and exchanged it for an HP Photosmart which I know will work with Ubuntu as I have been using an HP printer up to now.

    Just so you all know, this printer ripped me off. Won't even allow me to scan something unless I change the color ink cartridge because the printer tells me it is qua is empty. P.O.S. Anyone have any luck under 11.04?

    Hello All,

    Kodak did email me saying that they don't currently support linux. However, they have generated an Android app, "Kodak Pic Flick" that can print via Wi-Fi to any ESP C3xx model. This would suggest a relevant linux driver does exist in some form; with Google Android being based on a linux kernel. Is anyone able to peek inside this Android app for a PostScript Printer Description (.ppd) file? Or is it possible to install this Android app on Ubuntu and print via it somehow?

    Thanks.
