    Question Help installing Kodak ESP C315 Printer?

    Help, I just bought a new printer, a Kodak ESP C315. I can't find any drivers for this printer. The automatic install process could not find this printer. How do I install it on Ubuntu Linux? I am using a cable from a USB port not a wireless connection. From what I can see on this forum and other web posts I may have bought the wrong printer. Thanks for any help or assistance offered. Peter.

    There is a driver here.
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/cupsdriverkodak/files/
    You should use the version c2esp24
    download the file c2esp24.tar.gz
    extract it
    then read the file install to get detailed installation instructions.

    Or, if you want to try a slightly more automated installation:
    download c2espinstaller.sh
    change it's properties to make it executeable
    then execute it by opening a terminal and typing ./c2espinstaller.sh

    I doenloaded c2espinstaller.sh and ran it. In the dadabase there was only a C310 not the C315, but the C310 seems to work OK. Thanks very much for the help.

    Do you know what the differences are between the C310 and the C315?

    No, I don't. Can you tell me? Will it make any difference to the operation of the printer? The C315 is working, but I have to say it seems very slow compared to my 15yr old HP printer.

    Re: Help installing Kodak ESP C315 Printer?

    I'm afraid that seeming slow is pretty normal for these printers and c2esp.
    I'd expect some small difference in features between the C310 and C315, maybe it's just the size of the LCD display. I think that's bigger on the C315
    If you can print using the C310 ppd file then it's working!

    It worked. I have a Kodak ESP 315 and have been trying for the last month to get it to run on Ubuntu 12.04. I installed 12.04.1 on a 16Gig USB stick. Went to printers and clicked on the "ADD PRINTER" and followed the directions. I used the ESP 310 driver. It worked the first time.
