Epson CX7400 printer and FC9

The latest version of gutenprint is supposedly able to support this
printer. Any idea where I find that? If there is one issue with Linux
it's that by the time printer and scanner hardware is supported it's
no longer in production. I can't count how many scanners I have
bought (new) which just didn't work, and by the time they worked the
new model or new firmware was out and I couldn't buy the one that
Anyway, I would like to use this setup because it's quite neat but
Alternatively, if I could use the USB printer and scanner directly
from Windows under kvm without causing the working system printers to
die, I would do that. Last time I tried the printer worked but the
rest of the system printers hung after I did it. :-(
Do you mean that the scan and print drivers at:
are not suitable for you?
The list of supported o/s (click "supported OS" button) ends at RH9 or
FC3, and doesn't include CX7400. So I guess that would be a "no," or at
least "not obviously." The latest gutenprint-cups supposedly includes
CX7400, but that's clearly not the one on rawhide, which picks the 7700
driver which spews paper as long as there is any.
I was hoping for a drop-in gutenprint RPM from a 3rd party repository.
If you have some deep link to the site and a version for FC9 I'd love to
have it. I just don't want to screw up the print system yet again to the
point where the other printers don't work.
