Epson printer disabled ?

Post by Gonzalo on Sun Nov 22, 2015 5:15 am

I installed escputil for epson printers and all was working fine for weeks.
Today I try printing and nothing happens.

Entered @ terminal...
lpstat -p - says printer disabled

Printer settings seem to be all there.

escputil is so full of selections in the list that it makes options hard to find  Neutral

just checked 'printers localhost' and 'enabled' was unticked. Have no idea  Question how this was unticked since it was working a couple of days ago.

Don't know how I missed checking there !

Thanks shadowvzs Smile

On several Linux versions I had a similar local network printer problem that would happen randomly, usually weeks between episodes.  Re-installing the printer  always worked.  Eventually I realized that  after a power outage or router reset DHCP would give the printer a new address.   Problem solved with a manually assigned static printer address--and one final install procedure for the systems. There was never a problem with the computers losing track of the internet--only the printer seemed to have a problem.
