Ubuntu – Installing Epson ET-3600 fail to install

driversepsonprintingsoftware installation

I am running ubuntu 16.04 on an Acer 64bit laptop. I have followed all installation procedures from the support website from Epson and from Ubuntu support and have failed to install the Epson ET-3600 Eco-Tank driver.

I downloaded all drivers available for this unit for Linux a none of them seems to work. I managed to install the printer, but the following error appears when I try to print a test page.

There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'.

Any help with this issue is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I started the installation of the core package and three drivers with the package manager.

I found that using the Epson ET-2600 driver works for printing on the ET-3600.


Search for ET-2600, linux. Download the driver, not the driver utility. Install the deb for your arch. Connect the USB cable, add printer dialog, select epson, then et-2600 through cups. Works a treat.
