I am having a problem with my Epson R380 printer. I a running Debian Lenny,
and the latest KDE for lenny, and CUPS.
I installed this printer a while ago, and when you reboot, it prints for a
while, then stops. lpstat gives me this:
printer EpsonR380 is idle. enabled since Fri 01 Aug 2008 08:00:27 AM EDT
if I go to the command line and type:
it prints to the R380 ( default printer)
I do remember I had to really do some magic to get it to print, running alien
on a pipslite RPM to install it... is there an easy fix for this, or am I
trying to do the impossible??
if I go to the web admin for printers, it shows this:
EpsonR380 (Default Printer) "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertopips failed"
