Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

Hi
I have been trying to get my epson stylus SX420 to work with linux mint - though it looks like its installed the driver ok it only prints one line a page or spews out lots of pages - so I used system-config-printer to change the driver - it found one for this printer but when I activated it it says:
Sorry, the installation of this driver failed.

Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log


The log has lots of things in it - but ends with the following

835 ERROR: Binary package epson-inkjet-printer-nx420 has no trusted origin, rejecting


It does say linux developers haven't tested the package. I would like to give it a go though - how can I get round this 'trusted origin' problem.

I am new to linux, so it might be something people would find obvious who know linux.

oh I did try sudo system-config-printer to see if that would get over it - but it had the same result

Thank you for any help you can give me :D

What edition/version of Mint are you using?

...though it looks like its installed the driver ok...

Which driver/s and from where?

Sorry, the installation of this driver failed.

Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log

If you have a longer text like a log, you can paste it in a [code] window and it'll show up with a scrollbar.

Where does it say this?
I searched the 835 error message and only came up with a link to this post...

Thanks for your reply Dagon

I am on Linux mint 12

The driver was the one that came up as an option when I did system-config-printer - there was a nice gui screen and the following driver recommended:

Epson Inkjet Printer Driver for Linux (version 1.0.0) [Recommended]

The other option was:

Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R) for Linux (version 1.2.0)

I tried both actually and both had the same error at the end of the logfile.

This is the logfile for the first option

the code option wouldn't let me submit or save this post so I tried to attached a text file .txt and also .log neither filetype was accepted as an attachment. What filetypes are accepted? I suspect the [code] option didn't work because the file was way too big.

The error was the last line of the log file.



Thanks for your help

Can anyone help me with this? It would be great if someone would - even if you need to have the log file and I can't post it - I can post sections if that helps

Thank you

The model number Epson Stylus SX420W.

Method 1:
You may refer to the below links and use the troubleshooters. Check if it lists and helps resolve any issues: Open the Printer troubleshooter:
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/supp ... tIndex.jsp

Method 2:
You may check if you have the latest drivers installed for the device. You may refer to the below link for getting the latest drivers and check.

Thanks for your reply - I have tried both links - there is no mention of my printer on the first section and in the drivers there is no driver for linux mint only windows and mac drivers, these don't work with linux I am assuming?

Any other thoughts? - I see people do get printers working with their linux mint OS It must be possible surely..

PRINTER DRIVER

I would delete any printers you have already got installed: eg see the screenshot for my "configure printers" page

Epson provide printer drivers for linux, under the name "Avasys":

so start here

http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/

then click on multi-functional

http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do

select model

and you get to here

http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/downl ... kjet/escp/

if you use the Control-f button on your browser you will find that the SX420 driver is the same as for the NX420; but there is a family driver for the 420 series;

Mint uses debian packages; so you need the .deb package; either 32bit or 64bit whichever you use

looks like for 32bit it will be epson-inkjet-printer-nx420-1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb

I would imagine gdebi installer will leap in as you click to download; I would personally be happy to install a package from Epson and that ....should..........give you a printer driver

SCANNER DRIVER:

.................as I understand it............to install the scanner driver Epson provide (under the avasys label)...................... (they call it Image Scan! for Linux)

............ you need to go to this page ..............http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/sc ... ...........

and download the scanner driver ...............I say to do this because Epson say

"Image Scan! for Linux" is a scanner utility that makes it easy to obtain high quality images on Linux with your EPSON scanner or MFP (Multifunction Laser Printers) or All-in-Ones (Multifunction Inkjet Printers).

not at all; very pleased to help; delighted it is all working for you; with a pseudonym such as yours, my long-suffering wife and daughter would feel my time on linux has at last paid off!
