Per chi ha la stampante Epson C64: se avete ancora problemi forse queste spiegazioni vi potranno aiutare. In sintesi sono riportate quali versioni minime dovete avere per il supporto e come aggirare un bug di compilazione se avete compilato il pacchetto a mano.

Hi. I just subscribed to the list about 5 minutes ago, I hope this isn't a question you've already seen 400 times.
I just bought an Epson C64. According to linuxprinting.org, gimp-print supports it, and I've found a couple of newsgroup postings where people have said that they have it working. But http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/p_Supported_Printers.php3 specifically skips the C64, although it has others in that series.
I've switched my sources.list (I'm using Xandros 2.0, based on Debian) to use "unstable" instead of "testing" (to get newer versions), and I've upgraded CUPS and gimp-print. I've also restarted CUPS and rebooted the machine. When I try to add the printer, either using the KDE wizard or the browser (localhost:631), I still do not see any driver for the C64.
Does anyone know if the C64 is truly supported? If so, please point me to the documentation to implement it. I have really tried all the sites I know and Googled (both web and groups). If it is not, is there any word on when it will be?
It is supported in the latest releases of Gimp-Print (4.2.6-rc2 and 4.3.25). I assume you're trying to compile a recent release of 4.2, although you didn't say. There's a bug in the build process by which the PPD file generator isn't picking up the new version of the library that's being built.
The easiest workaround is to remove /usr/lib/libgimpprint.so* prior to building the Gimp-Print package. There will be a better workaround in 4.2.6.
