View Full Version : [ubuntu] Epson Workforce 840 works in 10.04

I just wanted to mention that I recently purchased a new Epson Workforce 840 printer today and installed it on my 10.04 Ubuntu computer and it works! At least I know that the printer itself works. I still haven't tested the scanner portion, but will soon. The system recognized it as an Epson Workforce 600something, and I gave it a shot as that, but it shows up in my Printer settings as the 840.

I was really happy about it because I generally prefer Epson printers, but everyone had told me that HP was more likely to be compatible. I spent some time researching it, and then in the end, simply jumped and took the chance.
