The Epson L850 is a versatile printer that I came accross recently. Its the kind of printers that carry along an ink tank which is good but abit messy when it comes to refilling it.

Driver Installation

This Driver installation tutorial is for Linux users specifically Archlinux. Am assuming that the connection media to the printer is via a USB 2.0 cable.

  • Update your machine.
pacman -Syu
yay epson-inkjet-printer-escpr 
  • Install Epson L800 Driver packages.
yay epson-inkjet-printer-l800

After the above installs successfully, you are good to go. Print the test page :-)

The ppd file for most printers is available on this Github repo.
