Has anyone had any luck getting CUPS to talk to an Epson Workforce 600
printer? I got pipslite and eklite.ppd extracted (and modified it to use
Letter instead of A4) but I can't seem to get CUPS to talk succesfully with
the printer. The printer configuration under Gnome widget does show that
CUPS detected something (pipslite:...) but when I try to use it I get a
wrapper error. The wrapper itself is in binary so there's not much I can
make of it. This was done with the Workforce600 in wireless mode.
I've had no luck with various combinations so far with direct ethernet,
wireless ethernet, http:, ipp:, lpd, socket: attempts.
Well... according to the OpenPrinting database, it's not looking good:
Thank you for looking.
Whew! Finally found a method that worked -- had to buy a $40 USB cable,
but with it I got the printer working under both WinXP and Linux.
