Kodak 3200 All in One

I'm using Linux Lite 1.0.8.  I'm trying to get a Kodak 3200 to work with it.  I have downloaded the drivers from synaptic.  Lite see's the printer but it won't print.  Can anyone help me with this?


Thanks

Try removing the printer, and re-adding it. Also, what driver or software did you get from Synaptic?

I'm at a different location now than the computer I'm working with but I didn't use the one at "Sourceforge".  Whatever driver is packaged in Synaptic.  I did disconnect and reconnect with no success.

Hello!

Sadly, Linux printer support varies widely from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some can't see much beyond Windows or Mac.

Try this, gleaned from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1656550:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/cupsdriverkodak/

I also ran into this:

https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/raring/printer-driver-c2esp/. It's said this works fairly well on the 3200 AIO series.

That same post went on to suggest that for Linux, you're better off using something else besides a Kodak printer...

Being new to this I downloaded the tar file from sourceforge and extracted it.  Then I did this "tar -xzf c2esp-27.tar.gz
cd c2esp-27

 Configured (./configure) >make, and ended up with this error -"make  all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ray/Downloads/c2esp-27'
Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ray/Downloads/c2esp-27/src'
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..    --pedantic -Wall -std=c99 -O2 -g -O2 -MT c2esp.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/c2esp.Tpo -c -o c2esp.o c2esp.c
c2esp.c:36:25: fatal error: cups/raster.h: No such file or directory
 #include <cups/raster.h>
                         ^
compilation terminated.
make[2]: *** [c2esp.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `"

What did I do wrong?

Hello!

I went back out there and dug around some more for you.

You can go to the following link and download the file you need there as a .deb file, which you can then install using GDebi. Depending on whether you have the 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit (amd64) version of LL installed, download the appropriate file:

For LL 1.0.6/1.0.8: http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/printer-driver-c2esp
For LL 2.0 beta:      http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/printer-driver-c2esp

Depending on whether you have the 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit (amd64) version installed, download the appropriate file. GDebi will fetch any needed dependencies for you (or will tell you what you need), whereas if you try to compile from source, you have to figure all this out for yourself. Additionally, compiling from source requires a bunch of extra dependencies you probably don't have installed.

If yat all possible, avoid compiling ANYTHING *YOURSELF* like the plague...
