Re: Suggestion: For Mint 20 to go full Debian

Isn't Ubuntu 18.04 based on Debian unstable ? Debian has 3 versions, level 1 for those who want stability, level 2 for progressives and level 3 for the adventurous. Linux Mint is cautious and that is appreciated. The first version release inherits some of the vagaries of its chosen base, point relea...

Re: Cannot install Epson XP640 printer or scanner

No, you do not need to re-install the operating system but I would restore "/etc/sane.d/dll.conf" if you have deleted some entries as well as "/etc/sane.d/epson2.conf". That should get your system back to its original state. When you connect the XP-640 to your computer using a USB cable, the drivers...

Re: Epson WF-3520 "Could not send command to scanner"

Using a fresh (not an upgrade) installation of Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64 bit and using the same drivers for my Epson Artisan (printer and scanner) as those for the WF-3520, connected via wi-fi, Simple Scan and XSane worked but Epson's Image Scan did not. Functioning of Image Scan was achieved with t...

Re: Epson WF-3520 "Could not send command to scanner"

Does the scanner work when using a USB connection ? Have you coded into the WF-3520 the pass key for your modem/router ? This is essential to enable communication between the two units. On the Epson screen, go to Setup, press OK, use down arrow to Network Settings, press OK, go to Setup Wizard, pres...

With the unit powered on, does scanimage -L identify your WF-3520 correctly? Does Simple Scan work ?

Re: wi-fi won't connect

If your wired connection was to a modem/router then the password required for wireless operation would be the password for the modem/router - usually found on its base sometimes called "network key".

Re: Epson XP-640 printer printing blank pages

Please check that you have the correct driver installed. If you are using a 64 bit operating system the correct driver for your XP-640 is "epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.6.22-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb". If you are using a 32 bit operating system the correct driver for your XP-640 is "epson-inkjet-printer-escp...

Re: How to gett/install Epson L310 driver

When you download anything it goes by default to your Downloads folder. If it is not there or the folder is empty then you may have accidentally removed it.

Download a fresh copy (it is only 476 kB) from http://support.epson.net/linux/en/iscan ... sion=1.0.4

Re: Cannot install Epson XP640 printer or scanner

...typed in imagescan
the correct command is iscan.

Why don't you try your Epson with a USB cable connection before configuring for wi-fi.

There is no Epson XP640 but there is an Epson XP-640. The Epson Download Centre does not respond to wrong entries.

Re: Install NVIDIA's latest driver on Mint 19.0 Cinnamon x64

In your main menu, under the subheading of Administration you will discover the Driver Manager. It will ask for your password and then offer you whatever driver is recommended for your video card. Do that first before installing a driver that is untested and untried in Linux Mint 19. I am using the ...

So now the printer works via USB - is that called getting to first base? I suggest that the scanner comes next. If you have not already done so, download the scanner bundle for Linux Mint 64 bit from the Epson Download Centre (http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/searc ... ch/?OSC=LX) called iscan-bund...

So you have downloaded "epson-inkjet-printer-201207w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb" and it is in your Downloads folder (I don't understand what you mean by "have it recognized"). Double click on that file to install it. Connect your computer to the printer using a USB cable and power the printer ON. Reboo...

Re: Hardware Problems with Kernel 4.15.0-20 and -21

If something does not work then an upgrade might fix it. If everything works leave it alone.

Hover your mouse cursor over the offered kernel update and it will indicate if it is intended as a security update.

For me kernel 4.15.0-23 works fine.

I had problems with the 4.15.0-24 kernel in that switching my router on would also activate my computer which eventually required a reboot to activate the Network Manager. To get the grub boot menu if "timeout" is set to "0", you have to edit grub and alter the timeout setting. Use a text editor suc...
