Gentoo KDE 4.x – Epson Stylus C84 Photo Edition support

(Gentoo installation notes - Printing)

What good is a desktop PC if it can't print?

Here are some simple steps to get the above printer and many others working since the gutenprint package contains support for a lot of printers by various vendors such as Cannon, Brother, HP, Dell ......

See the below link for a full list of supported printers.

Open a terminal and with root access type the following,

emerge -av cups gutenprint
/etc/init.d/cupsd start
rc-update add cupsd default

KDE users can now configure their printer using System Settings > Printer Configuration

Or if you prefer the cups browser interface, http://localhost:631
