No Duplex on Epson printer ?

Post by dargaud » Sat Aug 25, 2012 4:41 pm

Hello all,
I'm using TurboPrint on an Epson Stylus Office B42WD, and the only duplex options available are Off, Manual portrait and Manual Landscape. Am I missing something ?
I was using 2.26-1 and just upgraded to 2.26-2, no change.
Ubuntu 12.04

Thanks.

Hello,

thank you for your feedback! We will add the "duplex" option in the next release.

Can you please try the TurboPrint driver "Epson_StylusSX525WD" which supports duplex printing and is compatible with the StylusOfficeB42WD driver?

Sure, but where do I download it ? A quick search turned nothing.

The driver "Epson_StylusSX525WD" is already part of TurboPrint 2.26-2.

Just add another printer in TurboPrint Control, choose your printer in the list of printer ports, then select the driver Epson_StylusSX525WD instead of the Epson_StylusOfficeB42WD.

Sorry it took a while, but it's my parents' printer and I don't often have access. I just tried the Epson Stylus SX 525 WD driver and the duplex works. The devel on TP can go ahead and copy/past the code for the 42WD !
I don't know if there are drawbacks to using that driver on the 42WD, but I left it as default for now.
Thanks for the suggestion.
