I have an Epson Stylus Photo R290 ink jet printer, on which I have to occasionally perform ink jet cleans.

Problem is, I prefer to leave my machine in Linux so I would love to find a file I can 'print' which will result in the printer doing a print head clean followed by a nozzle check pattern.

Is there a way I can do a print head clean/nozzle check from Linux?

Assistance greatly appreciated :)

EDIT:

Found the escputil program, which is part of the net-print/gutenprint ebuild.

In my case, my default printer is set so
Code:
 escputil  --clean-head && escputil --nozzle-check
does the job :)

Found this info here
