    Epson printer xp-810 won't install

    I think I posted this earlier but it was moved and I cannot find it.

    Trying to connect a wireless network Epson xp-810. My laptop sees it on the network, does a search and finds a driver, but the install fails and tells me to look at the error log /var/log/jockey.log. I have no idea how to find this file.

    I even tried to install it using a USB cable, same result.

    Hello? Note to self...you are too old to be trying to figure out new operating systems, go back to Windows XP and live without ulcers.

    But I really gotta get this printer installed, this was a gift to my wife and I really hate to break her heart by admitting I don't know everything.

    Nope, this is the your only thread about a printer.

    Perhaps the readers thought you were going to abandon the quest and return to XP.

    Which version of Ubuntu do you have install is 32 or 64 bit. Also, are you getting the drivers from the Epson website. Finally, do you have Gdebi package installer installed.
