Which distro are you using? I know I have a Epson CX3200 and it works with every distro I have tried so far. If I know the distro I could try to check for sure.

Hi, Actually I am new to Linux so I am not sure what distro means or which one I am using. Can you guide me to how I can find that out so you can help with the printer question? Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate you trying to help. Carolyn wink.gif

By distribution we mean, Redhat, Mandrake, SuSE, Slackware, Knoppix and so on. The major distros i.e. Rehdat and Mandrake have hardware compatibility lists.

I found that my Epson worked with Mandrake and Fedora OK. Mandrake provides gimp-print drivers for virtually all Epson printers, and I had no problems. Fedora provides stabdard CUPS srivers, which produce an aceptable quality, though not as good as the gimp-print ones.

http://www.linuxprinting.org/printer_list.cgi shows details of loadsssss of printers, and wheterh or not they work under Linux, and if so, using which method
