    Espon ALCX11nf

    Hi please help, I have a Epson ALCX11nf printer connected to a windows network, and I have installed Ubuntu on one of my machines everything works fine, except the Epson printer I just cannot get it to print, I tried the following thread:
    sudo apt-get install libcupsys2-dev build-essential
    tar -zxvf Epson-ALCX11-filter-1.1.tar.gz
    cd Epson-ALCX11-filter-1.1/
    sudo make install
    [ sudo apt-get install bc ] # this should already be installed on Heron
    sudo apt-get install libstdc++5

    when i go to install printer driver i found the epson alcx11 listed it install but when i try to print i get the following message: Printer Epsonalcx11 requires the program but it is not currently installed. Please install it before using the printer.

    Please help as Im new to Linux and I am at a loss, please

    Thank you

    I am getting the exact same error, only my problem started after upgrading to 8.10, it worked fine in 8.04. My other printer still works fine (Xerox 8560) Anyone have any ideas?

    Ubuntu 8.10
    Intel P4
    Connected to printer via LAN
