Epson PM 850PT
Color inkjet printer, max. 2880x1440 dpi, works Perfectly
Recommended Driver: gutenprint (Home page)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


Japanese version of the Epson Stylus Photo 925.

This printer has slots for CompactFlash, SmartMedia, and Sony Memory Stick photo memory cards. so one can print photos without PC. The front panel has a graphical user interface which gives many options for printing from photo cards. There is also a connector for a little color LCD monitor for choosing the photos to print. Photo download works with kernel 2.4.21 or later. The memory card can be simply mounted as a USB-mass-storage device then.

6-color CMYKcm printing.

Roll paper feeder with cutter. Roll paper handling works as with older Epson Stylus Photo models, there are no control options for the cutter in Gimp-Print yet and when one presses the "Roll Feed" button on the front panel to eject the printout, it is cut, but near 2 cm after the image, leaving a white border. So for correctly cut photos you have to copy them onto a memory card and then print via the front panel.

USB only.
