Great. I manage to print a nozzle ckeck with command line.
Now, as my printer looooves to get clogged nozzles, I spent incredible amount of time/ink cleaning the heads. I do not always think about doing a weekly "manual cleaning".
My goal would be to add a weekly scheduled job with anacron to make sure, at least once weekly something runs trough the printheads...
Is there a way to manage that on non-interactive command line ? I seached the man pages, faq and even my old friend google could not help me...
That would be _once again_ a terrific advantage of the Linux use of this high end printer...
Thanks in advance _o/
the "Linux style" solution would be to send the file containing the command to clean the print heads from command line
Code: Select all
lp -d <printername> -o raw <filename>
It is an Epson Stylus Pro 4900.
I would be the happiest man with that...
I tested the file. It works perfectly for head cleaning.
However, before taking this active action, i would rather be interested by the "print nozzle check pattern". Does it also exists as .prn file ?
Thank you very much for your support.
Thank you for your help. This is really the Linux way of living that made me choose this for more than 15 years...
Once again thank you very much.
Sorry for the extremely late reply on this tread. I'm also desperately looking for a way to initiate a nozzle check (not the text pattern though) on my Epson Stylus Pro 4900 via cli. May I kindly ask for the appropriate file?
I've been searching the internet like crazy but I always end up on this forum thread.
Thanks so much in advance
