Can't get Epson WF-3620 to print using CUPS

Sun Apr 09, 2017 8:43 pm

I keep getting a "Filter Failed" error - any more info needed, please advise. I am a newbie to linux, but am trying to learn ;-)

Epson only appear to list basic Linux Drivers for x86-32 / x86-64 CPU Architecture.

The Raspberry Pi uses ARM CPU Architecture.

3rd Party Printer Driver from Gutenprint does not list your printer: http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/p_Sup ... inters.php


IMO buy a supported HP Printer: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/supported_devices
Retired disgracefully.....
