Description of problem:
My Fedora auto installed the dirver of it.But
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.the computer showed printed successfully
3.Nothing happened then
The printer did nothing
I had talked about it in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=807400 And I'm told to write a new bug report
"Known not to use a standard protocol as PostScript or PCL"
And from http://www.openprinting.org/driver/epsonepl
The printers of Epson's EPL "L" series do not understand PCL 5e, PCL 6, or PostScript and so they do not work with standard drivers; they can only be driven through a proprietary language.
An independent driver was developed in the epsonepl project.
So you actually can't use this foomatic driver for 'Epson EPL-6200' and need
to use either manufacturer provided driver or try
I think the problem described in bug #807400, comment #8 was that you were using the automatically selected 'Epson EPL-6200' driver (which is a postscript one) instead of the one from http://www.avasys.jp
I'm closing this BZ as there's no driver for this printer in foomatic.
We'd probably need to package http://sourceforge.net/projects/epsonepl to have one.
