Epson Stylus C42SX
Color inkjet printer, max. 1440x720 dpi, works Perfectly
Recommended Driver: gutenprint (Home page)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


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


Cheap 4-ink home printer with a medium resolution (1440x720 dpi), but in contrary to the Stylus Color 480/580 with a power and a cancel button. parallel port only, there is also a "UX" model with only a USB port.

It seems to be a little bit faster than the C40SX.

Supported in Gimp-Print 4.2.2, 4.3.3, or newer. In older Gimp-Print versions the driver for the C40SX/UX already works.
