|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
Found the escputil program, which is part of the net-print/gutenprint ebuild.
In my case, my default printer is set so
does the job
| escputil --clean-head && escputil --nozzle-check |
Found this info here
