Assigning this package request to all packagers collectively. On a voluntary basis, one of them might want to integrate it to the distribution and maintain it for bug and security fixes.

You might also want to join the packager team to maintain this piece of software: see https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Becoming_a_Mageia_Packager

Sorry, bugs@ml and pkg-bugs@ml members, for the avalanche.

72 bugs with the "New RPM package request" component, had a severity of "normal" or more, which can lead to losing precious time when searching Bugzilla for bugs that urgently need to get fixed

Now mass-changing that to "enhancement", as it should be for package requests.


@ the reporter of this package request

Please check in http://madb.mageia.org/ whether this software did already get packaged, and close this bug report if it did.
Please do also close it if you find a package with the same purpose, that meets your needs.

Severity: normal => enhancement

The only package with epson printer drivers that we have, is epsoneplijs which is for different printers. Apart from that, it is unmaintained upstream https://sourceforge.net/projects/epsonepl/files/

I don't know whether there's a similar project somewhere.

It seems the only way to get a recent Epson printer working, is to download the driver from the Epson website, as said in this section of our MCC manual:

Version: 5 => Cauldron

Comment 5 Marja Van Waes 2018-07-12 10:54:21 CEST
(Version was set to cauldron, because new packages need to be in cauldron first, before they can be backported to stable, but still maintained, versions)
