SMB printing to an Epson Stylus Color

SMB printing to an Epson Stylus Color

Post by root » Thu, 23 Oct 1997 04:00:00

As the subject says, I've got an Epson Stylus color hooked to an NT box
on the network and a local linux dot-matrix.  The matrix is fine for 90%
of the work, but I would like to be able to print to the epson ( like
for my Mathematica school stuff).  I heard that you could setup
ghostscript to print to the stylus locally, but how would I do it over
the net to an SMB machine?  

Thanks for any help

1. SMB printing with Epson Color Stylus

I have been scanning all the documentation and none seem to have any
information on how to setup an Epson Color Stylus as an SMB printer.  I
use the RedHat 4.2 print tool from the control panel to add the SMB
printer.  From there I fill in all the info..but when trying to get a
correct driver, I get stuck.  The ESC is not on the list, and even when
I pick a generic color printer and fill in the supposed gs arguments to
work with the ESC, it does not work.  I can print raw text, so that's
not the problem, but I can't get anything beyond that...please help.
