Epson LQ 100 printer, sooo slow, and with low resolution
I am not very sure whether I should post here, or in the hardware forum. Or, as I discovered Ubuntu about a week ago, perhaps in "Absolute beginners", although absolute begins to be exaggerated as I installed Cairo-Dock after writing a script to handle screen copies.
So, here is the problem. I have an Epson LQ 100 printer that runs jolly good on Windows, but on Ubuntu it takes about an hour to print a test page, and after that the resolution is so low that it is hardly readable.
This is the only problem I saw on that machine.
I tried several drivers that other people were satisfied with, the last one is Epson LQ 570+. This one is a little less slow, but still not quick enough, and the resolution is still so low.
The language used by the printer is Epson ESC/P2.
The system is Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, the memory size 494 MB, the processor is Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.4 Ghz.
Any idea what to do ?
