Hi Mark,
I have tried to use this printer today and get 'funny' results.
I logged on to the computer and and switched the printer on, I tried to print a 1k .jpg and nothing happened.
I checked the print queue status and it said it was 'compiling' or something, I don't really know as I am getting pretty turned off with this.
I will give it up for the day
EDIT I have closed down the printer access and am sitting on the computer home page, I plug in the USB to the printer and it prints the page I was asking for ???

So it works via USB but not via wireless ?

Try this in Peppermint 9

Thanks Mark,
I tried that suggestion but with no luck.
I went to Printers and selected the Epson > 'Print test page'. The box now shows 'Printer State' Processing-Rendering complete. When I look in the print queue it says 'Processing'. I went for lunch.
After lunch I checked again and it was still 'Processing'. I cancelled the job after 50 minutes.
So it looks as I have no success with that ??
