Installing an Epson Stylus Photo RX500 on Ubuntu Feisty.

Filed under: Epson RX500, Linux, Printing, ubuntu — Benaiah @ 2:00 pm

If you already have GIMP-Print then this printer requires no additional installation! Just plug it in and use the Ubuntu Add a Printer Wizard.

System >> Administration >> Printing >> New Printer

Follow the instructions and be sure to select the driver for the Epson Stylus Photo RX500.

I use XSane for scanning:

Applications >> Graphics >> XSane Image Scanner

If you don’t have GIMP-Print already, it is easy to install.

sudo apt-get install gimp-print

Now go back and follow the instructions at the beginning of this post and you will have a working Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Printer/Scanner!
