Since we have such a printer and it was not working anymore since I installed gutsy I started searching for some solutions. The answer I found largely in this post, however the deb files were not available on that location. So I asked someone with a i386 system to alienate the rpm’s to deb format for me (You can find them here). And the instructions are like this:

  • download the above deb files somwhere
  • sudo dpkg –force-architecture -i epson-alc1100-filter_1.2-1_i386.deb
  • sudo dpkg –force-architecture -i epson-alc1100-filter-cups_1.2-1_i386.deb
  • add a new printer throug: system ->administration -> printing and select for driver the newly added alc1100
  • All done!
