    Exclamation Epson AcuLaser CX16 (AL-CX16) doesn't print

    Hi;

    I have Ubuntu 11.04.

    I bought Epson AcuLaser CX16. Ubuntu recognized it but doesn't have a printer driver for it. Also via Epson/Avasys website I found only a CX11 driver. I'm tried to install the CX11 driver and some other Epson drivers + a Generic PCL driver. With all of them I will get the same result:

    - Driver sends test pages and other files to printer.
    - They appears to printer queue.
    - After a short time files disappears from the queue.
    - But: the printer will not print. It doesn't do anything.

    I'm sure that all cables are connected and power is on.
    My previous printer (Canon Pixma MP520) worked fine.

    I have CUPS installed.

    By localhost:631/admin -> Error log I can find the following error messages:

    - Returning IPP client-error-not-possible for CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer (ipp://localhost/printers/Epson-AL-CX16) from localhost
    - Returning IPP client-error-not-possible for CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer (ipp://localhost/printers/AL-CX11) from localhost
    - Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Send-Document (ipp://localhost:631/printers/EPSON_AL-CX16) from localhost
    - [CGI] Unable to scan "@LOCAL"!

    Any ideas; what's wrong?
    Or can I found the right CX16 driver or a good replacement from any website?

    Thanks forehand!

    Re: Epson AcuLaser CX16 (AL-CX16) doesn't print

    Hi again;

    I got the following answer from Avasys Corporation Customer Care:

    ---
    Unfortunately, Epson Aculaser CX16 does not support the printing function
    on Linux. The scanning function is not supportted on Linux, too.
    Sorry we couldn't be of any further help.

    ---

    So:

    1) - Can I install Windows drivers to Linux with Wine? Works it or is it unstable/impossible?

    2) - Is it likely that the Linux printer function (mentioned on the Avasys answer) will be improved so the CX16 could work (for example, with Generic driver) although the Avasys gave up?

    Question Re: Epson AcuLaser CX16 (AL-CX16) doesn't print

    Will an upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 solve my problem?

    Question Re: Epson AcuLaser CX16 (AL-CX16) doesn't print

    Hi again everybody!

    Can I install Windows drivers with Wine?
    Works it? Will it make my system unstable?

    Thanks,

    It's already in ubuntu.

    Hi sabax,

    thanks a lot, for this hint. I can confirm it works with the Konica Minolta Magicolor1600w driver in IPP mode.

    And again 3 hours of wasted life time ;-(

    Epson AcuLaser CX16 works now

    Yes,

    CX16 works with Konica Minolta Magicolor 1600w drivers.
    Thanks!

    In my case, it was required to make changes by http://localhost:631 address. Ubuntu 11.10 & Gnome gui didn't found the correct drivers. (I don't know why.)

    Hi:

    If I purchase a Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W which versions of Ubuntu will find the driver automatically? It seems to be a good deal.
    Thanks
