[ubuntu] Printing from Ubuntu 12.10

http://ubuntuforums.org – I would like some guidance on printing from Ubuntu 12.10 on a Windows 7 printer. I have a VAIO laptop with a dual boot setup of Ubuntu/Windows 7. My original printer (Canon PIXMA MP760) was no problem but that unit decided to give up on me today and I now have an EPSON XP-300. This unit works fine with Win 7 but there does not seem to be a driver available for Linux. There is a "9 pin printer" in the Epson Printers listing in Ubuntu but using this only results in a sheet of paper being fed through the printer but no actual printing. I assume it will require a setup of Samb (Hardware)
