Linux Mint 9 and now Linux Mint 13 (amd64 version), TurboPrint 2.24-1 (amd64), Epson Stylus Pro 3800, USB connection
Problem: printing stops after some variable amount of printing. See the attached screen capture. This started happening about a year ago, and I thought the printer was going bad. I replaced the USB cable, but that did not help. Then I tried printing from Windows (in a VirtualBox virtual machine, in Linux) on this same computer, and this works reliably. My conclusion is that my problem is TurboPrint related.
Normally I print to this printer fron the Gimp, using the TurboPrint Gimp plugin. Printing from the Gimp, not using the plugin, gives the same results.
Looking for a solution on the TurboPrint forums, I found a suggestion that files remaining from an old installation of TurboPrint could interfere with a newer installation, so i deinstalled TurboPrint, removed all folders and files relating to TurboPrint, and then reinstalled. No success.
I attach a screenshot from a recent print attempt. Printing was from the Gimp using the TurboPrint Gimp plugin. Printing started then stopped. The TurboPrint Printer Monitor reported a USB error. Running lsusb in the Terminal shows the printer connected.
