Epson T13 in Slackware 13.0

After succeeded to install Epson T13 in ubuntu, now I m trying to install it into Slackware.

I download the direct rpm source the n10-nx127 driver, installed it but you will have this error “/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-n10-nx127/cups/lib/filter/epson_inkjet_printer_filter failed”

$rpm2tgz filename
$tar xvf file.tgz
$cd epson-inkjet-printer-n10-nx127-1.0.0-1lsb3.2/epson-inkjet-printer-filter-1.0.0/
$chmod 755 *.*
$./configure –prefix=/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-n10-nx127-1.0.0-1lsb3.2/
$make
$make install

I received this error while printer
epsont13 “/usr/lib/cups/backend/http failed”

Now I m upgrading the cups from 1.3.11 to 1.4.4. It failed. Resulting this error “print empty file”
So I downgraded again to 1.3.11
And using T20 gutenprint driver. When I try to print, the printer is moving but the paper won’t come out. Only the catridge is moving.

Okay so next shot
I m upgrading gutenprint from 5.2.4 to 5.2.5 choose T20 driver and it works hahaha.

Okay so you need only 5.25 above gutenprint driver to make epson t13 works.
