Does anybody knows how to print from wine?

Post by velayo » Sun Jul 21, 2019 5:23 pm

I installed Office and it is working rather well. My only issue right now is with printing. I can't install printer drivers and can't seem to find the printing application from android. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks.

So far I have tried to install windows' printer drivers, however at some point the installer stops with an error that says there is no network or internet access. My printer is an Epson XP-440 it an all in one and also supports wireless printing.

Windows hardware drivers don't work in Wine. Wine printing uses CUPS, and for Linux and Mac it usually just works. There is a CUPS printing app for Android. I have no idea if it works, but that's what you need to try.
