Hi all,
Ok, all those using high end printers. Anyone with the above printer/s using it with SuSE 10.0 or 10.1, successfully? Seems like Fred had the R800, but I haven't heard anyone mention the R1800. I think they are pretty close from what info I could gather. Epson has a driver for the R800 available for Linux, which should work for the R1800 as well. It just won't use all the extra features of the R1800. I know gimp-print doesn't support it, but the new gutenprint does/will.

I don't think SuSE has incorporated Gutenprint into the distro yet, so that counts that out for the moment? Anyone with other info, please pass it along.


Turboprint supports both:
Works well for me. Not FLOSS, but not overly expensive Approx. US$ 39.00
There is a trial version, so Fred is not happy with it he has lost

'Doesn't support my HP 7850. :(
