Installing a printer on Mint
I'm trying to install a printer on Linux Mint and I am having a little trouble. I went to OpenPrinting (the site for Linux printing and stuff) and found my printer (Epson Stylus Photo R260). I'm following it's instructions but find myself confused. The driver it recommends I download is "gutenprint" and I download it and it says to
"Download the desired driver package. Take care of the system architecture (normal PCs are "x86 32 bit", most Macs are "Power PC"). If your browser opens a media player plug-in, click the "Back" button of the browser, right-click the link for the package, and choose "Save as...".
* If you have a non-RPM-based distribution (Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, ...), convert the downloaded driver package(s) with alien (the packages are provided as RPM packages). Do (On Ubuntu, preceed the command by "sudo", on other distributions, run it as root):
alien --scripts <name of the downloaded RPM package>"
and I do it but it says the file cannot be found.
Can anyone help me out real quick with a suggestion on where I should save the driver too and how to follow the instructions?
