I having Epson L130 printer.

I know my printer model is old, but it is my old printer, I wanted to use it but it is kinda light and is missing some colours while printing, Head cleaning always solve this problem.

When I was on Windows, I was able to do head cleaning but as soon as I switched to Ubuntu 20.04, I am not getting any option for that. I have installed driver for the printer from web through Epson official website, It is printing documents and other stuff, so the driver is working, but I cannot see any head cleaning option and also maybe I need to do power ink flushing.

Is there some way to do that? I searched everything but didn't find correct solution.

Can I do it using some sort of other software or via terminal? I would prefer using terminal. Its been 1 year since I switched to Ubuntu, so I am definitely having some knowledge, so terminal would be much better.

Yes, my printer supports automatic head cleaning and its a wired printer btw.

Any help would be much appreciated.

  • is it a network printer?
