Epson Stylus C84
Color inkjet printer, max. 2880x1440 dpi, works Mostly
Recommended Driver: gutenprint (Home page)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


Like the Epson Stylus C82, but faster. C83 and C84 are the same, C83 is the name for the European and C84 for the US market. These printers are also capable of full-bleed (borderless) printing.

Parallel and USB ports.

With Gimp-Print 4.2.2 or newer it will work (except full-bleed) when choosing the Epson Stylus C82 as printer model, with older Gimp-Print versions when choosing the C80 as printer model.

This printer cannot be tested by sending plain text to it, as the printer may or may not respond to the text. The recommended way to test the connection is by checking the ink level with the escputil command as follows:

escputil -i -u -r /dev/lp0

where /dev/lp0 should be replaced with the name of your printer port.

Consumables/Refills: Four separately changable cartridges for black and the colours
