Have you checked the open printing foundation site for compatibility?

Prakash (vnprakash66) said : #2

Yes but no matching driver found

Is it an Epson AcuLaser M1400?

Prakash (vnprakash66) said : #4

exactly the same printer sir

Then why did you truncate the name?

Prakash (vnprakash66) said : #6

Sooooooooooooooooooooory sir

There is no driveron the Epson site and even avasys doesn't seem to like it either:
http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/laser/DL1.do

Neither does the openprinting foundation:
http://www.openprinting.org/printers/manufacturer/Epson

Try the link http://foo2hbpl.rkkda.com/ for an Epson AcuLaser M1400.

Just wanted to mention that starting with Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr the Epson AcuLaser M1400 is supported by default. Ricks driver "foo2hbpl" is included in version "2014-02-09" (package "printer-driver-foo2zjs" which is installed by default).

I've tried it today and it works like a charm! Just plug and play!

Can you help with this problem?
