Hi Ehsan,

The correct driver seems to be this one:

I found it here:

In addition, the following link provides a lot more information on how to install this particular printer on Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10:
If you have trouble accessing any of these pages, I can send it to you via email.

Best regards,

thanks Bruno
this list seems confusing.because systems and printing aren't in applications.
I usue Gnome classic.

1- Install the .deb package you have just downloaded from the link provided earlier as you would normally do for any other package by double clicking it.

2- After the package has been installed go to: Applications ==> Systems => Printing

3- Hit Add Printer

4- Under Select Device Choose AppSocket/HP JetDirect

5- In the host field fill the IP of your EPSON Stylus Office TX510fn Printer, you can find the IP from the LCD screen on the printer it self using the menu button & going to network settings. Then Hit forward

6- Choose the EPSON Stylus Office TX510FN Driver from under the EPSON drivers choices. Note that this driver was not there before installing the provided Debian package.

7- Fill the Printer Name with the desired printer name, & hit Apply

8- To ensure everything is working correctly, try to print a test page.

Hi Ehsan,

More specifically, Gnome 3 Classic ;)
OK, upper right corner where your user name or name is shown, click on it and select "System Settings". Then find the "Printers" icon and the rest should be similar.

Best regards,
