Epson CX11NF On Ubuntu 8.10 Solved – Simple List

I have seen a bunch of stuff on the web about this printer on Ubuntu. Now I have done it enough that I wanted to just outline the simple steps:

  1. apt-get install libcupsys2-dev
  2. Download  Epson-ALCX11-filter-1.1.tar.gz
  3. tax xvzf Epson-ALCX11-filter-1.1.tar.gz
  4. cd Epson-ALCX11-filter-1.1
  5. ./configure
  6. make install
  7. cp /usr/local/bin/psto* /usr/lib/cups/filter
  8. cp /usr/local/bin/alcx* /usr/lib/cups/filter
  9. service cups restart
  10. Open System -> Administration -> Printing
  11. Open Server -> New-> Printer
  12. (my Epson is on the network so it finds it imediately)
  13. Select the Device & Click Next
  14. Make is Epson – so let it show you a list of ppd files
  15. Select AL-CX11 from the list
  16. Name the printer
  17. Click OK
  18. Open the printer options
  19. Select Printer Options Reset Paper size to letter (if applicable)
  20. Click OK
