Re: Compiling Epson ESC/P-R Driver (generic print driver)

I think I used the ppd file that came with the package that I downloaded from the epson site, have you tried that?

Re: Compiling Epson ESC/P-R Driver (generic print driver)

I assume that the driver that you are referring to is the same esc/p-r driver that gets installed when you install CUPS?
That driver does not support the XP55 printer. By downloading the newest files from the epson site and compiling it myself I got the XP55 to work.

Re: Compiling Epson ESC/P-R Driver (generic print driver)

Somehow the printer did not work. Print jobs went straight into 'Completed' but the printer did nothing. I retried the whole process on Jessie and got a new *.deb file which actually worked! Again, if anyone can use it, here is the .deb file: https://mega.nz/#!ecUCDLzS!YGVi4JIIlPdL0t1-6HGcTBZuzphRNC...

Re: Wifi AP using TL-WN725N for Pi 1 512MB, B+, 2B or 3B

Your question somehow led me to checking the hostapd command first (because I did replace the hostapd files): $ which hostapd /usr/local/bin/hostapd My hostapd command is not linking to the same location (as said, no fresh install, actually a very old install and on top of that upgraded from wheezy ...

Re: Wifi AP using TL-WN725N for Pi 1 512MB, B+, 2B or 3B

I must confess, I didn't use a fresh install, but I followed the tutorial (thanks!). But I didn't get it to work. So now I would like to ask if someone can advice me on the following issues: When I start hostapd I get the following error: Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf Line 22: invali...

Compiling Epson ESC/P-R Driver (generic print driver)

I downloaded the epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.5-1lsb3.2.tar.gz source from the epson website since only *.deb files exist for i386 and amd64 but no ARM debian package. I proceeded as in the instructions: 6.2 For Debian based distributions 6.2.1 Uncompress the src.rpm file $ rpm2cpio epson-inkjet-p...
