"Re: Kodak Printer ESP 2170
There is a deb file for 64 bit here
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cupsdriverkodak/files/
but it will only drive the ESP xxxx printers, not ESP Cxxx or Hero
otherwise there are ideas for 64 bit here
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cups.../topic/3821012

And there is now a scanner driver - (a compile it yourself one) here
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cups...ane%20backend/ "

It is generally recognized that the printers with the best Linux support are HP.
