Avasys no longer provides drivers for Epson. That role has been taken up by Epson itself.

I was able to obtain a driver here:

Epson Download Service

it says to install lsb first:

epson lsb.png


it says

Code: Select all

apt-get install lsb


i assume we need to use SUDO

the printer is still in the box; i'll update this a bit later....

( I'm doing this update on a DEBIAN LMDE/2 system -- hope it works )

2016-05-25 Did not need to install driver: Betsy found the printer and hooked it in; scanner too.

kinda odd though -- everything prints a little light; i think i'll install the driver anyway

i did the install lsb as directed by the Epson site and then installed their driver (.deb) package-- no change in operation except scanner didn't work.

after i removed the lsb ( aptget remove lsb ) -- and remove the driver (.deb) package -- i had a printer not found condition.

after I re-installed the Epson driver package -- the printer was found again -- and it appeared it knew it needed to also install the lsb stuff. after that the printer and the scanner worked again -- although the printer continues to print a bit light -- ( like it's printing draft mode ) .

on googling for the problem i found this:
Under the printer properties, try changing the media type to "plain papers-Standard-Vivid".


yep; it worked. in retrospect: i did not need to install the lsb or the print driver from Epson; however the print driver from Epson seems to be identical to the one Betsy already had.

Epson XP-430 install problem

Postby Dave1w » Fri Aug 05, 2016 9:21 am

Hi, I need help getting a new Epson XP-430 installed on Linux Mint 16.
Software managed doesn't list the 430 (too new?) so I've downloaded the 430... .deb driver from Epson.
The "add new printer" shows the connected printer under USB and it also shows under network.
I am trying to install on USB.
In "add new printer" Searching for drivers does not list the 430 so I select "provide PPD file" and locate the downloaded PPD file in the box.
When moving forward, a pop up displays "Printer 'EPSON-XP-430-Series' requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper' program but it is not currently installed. Please install it before using this printer."
When closing this pop up, the printer is showing in "printers local host" but will not print a test page.
In properties, the printer status indicates: "Idle - File "/usr/lib/cups/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper" not available: No such file or directory".
I have located the wrapper file but I can not move, copy/paste or "copy to" any other folder despite changing permissions to read/write.
I have dead ended on this approach.

I have also tried installing by running the downloaded 430 ..... .deb file directly.
In this case the package installer opens, I click install, grant administrative rights and quickly a pop up gdbi-gtk indicates: Could not download all required files and details show a list of "failed to fetch....." files. It says check your internet connection but there is no internet connection problem for normal use.
I have dead ended on this approach.

Final approach has been "synaptic package manager" and mark for install: "epson-escpr ...This is a transitional dummy package to transition to uniformly named printer-driver-escpr."
Upon apply, a pop up comes up indicating: "W: Failed to fetch http://mirrors.liquidweb.com/ubuntu/poo ... 1_i386.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 69.167.187.144 80]"
I have dead ended on this approach.

My internet connection is working fine for all other functions.
The printer shows up on the printer page but communication is not occuring.
For some reason the required files will not load.

I need a workaround or dam buster.

I am unfamiliar with terminal so any directions there must be aimed at a raw beginner,

Thanks for your help
Dave

Epson XP-432 install

Postby Pierre » Thu Aug 18, 2016 10:59 am

the new Epson XP-432 wasn't recognised by LM17x
:(
a little searching gave some false starts.
- including that driver mentioned by mike acker
& which was installed,
( may have helped, but not immediately )

in the end - the package "Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R)"
was installed via Package Manager AKA synaptic

then, Menu - Control Center - Printers - - Add - Select Device - Network Printer
( it's got a WiFi connection ) ( preset already )
then - searching for drivers - Epson - Epson 400 Series - Apply
Finally - - Print the Test Page -- it works
:D

I got it solved, I was able to download lsb 4.1 and then the installer worked.

I also found this in my search https://wiki.linuxfoundation.org/en/Ope ... erPackages

I hope this helps the next person that runs into this issue

I just wanted to give a victory report with the Epson printer I just plugged in.

I need a printer at home, so I plugged in this Epson printer via usb to desktop PC, under Linux Mint, printer was recognized and the drivers were automatically installed. (Like a windows user!)

Just going to see if Scanning works, but very impressed that printing works fine, wifi on printer is perfectly working too.

Make: EPSON
Model: WF-2540
Wifi support
Fax, Scan, Print all in one, its quite small so perfect for home user or small business.

If your looking to print with Linux I strongly suggest buying one of these, they are an older printer but works perfect.

PS: With Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon, installing the cinnamon panel applet "Printers" works awesome and is nice to have. :)

Linux mint 64 bit with EPSON WF-3620 printer / scanner
scanner drivers are downloaded
tar xaf iscan-bundle-1.0.3.x64.deb.tar.gz

Change to the folder where you downloaded this scanner driver bundle,
extract it and install all components with

tar xaf iscan-bundle-1.0.3.x64.deb.tar.gz
cd iscan-bundle-1.0.3.x64.deb
./install.sh

Change WHAT? to the folder where i downloaded this scanner driver bundle,?
and extract it WHERE?
and install it HOW?

Hello,

I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm very new to Linux and I would like to uninstall the Epson drivers that I installed. I installed the epson-inkjet-printer-201105w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb from http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02/DriverDownloadInfo.do?LG2=EN&CN2=&DSCMI=16876&DSCCHK=b32e8a0bd44cc61369c3fa75fbab6b877ce71d25 and the iscan-bundle-1.0.4.x64.deb.tar.gz from http://support.epson.net/linux/en/iscan_c.php?version=1.0.4. What is the best way to uninstall these drivers? I would like to get rid of everything they loaded. Thanks

Hi,

I have just installed an Epson XP-640. I could not find a driver specific to this printer so I used one called epson-201208w which, I think, is generic for the XP-600 series. I found it here:

http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Eps ... 600_Series

It all works except that when I ask for duplex flipped on long-edge I get duplex flipped on short-edge and vice versa. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

Many thanks.

Graham

I own an Epson XP-530 and couldn't find a satisfying driver for it. I did use the epson-inkjet-printer-escpr package and got the printer to work, but only on a very low resolution so it looked as if the paper came from a 9-pin needle printer.
There was no way to use the full potential of the printer.

Then I installed the gutenprint package and saw a long list of Epson printers with just one XP type: XP-820. I selected that one, used the matching ppd file and now I can select up to 5760x2880 dpi.
The gutenprint package comes from the internet: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-print/files/gutenprint-5.2/5.2.12-pre4/
I fully installed the package with ./configure, make and make install.
For ./configure I used this line:

Code: Select all

./configure --enable-cups-ppds

This provides the ppd files which you can use to setup the printer.
Even though I use a ppd file which is not for my printer, it works great.

When you managed to do this I would suggest to add at least 2 printers, one with 720 dpi for normal text printing (printer is stil reasonably fast while output is okay) and one with a higher dpi value for photos (should you want that).

Looking at the long list of Epson printers out there I just wonder why they don't develop just half of that amount, reducing engineering costs which they can then use to build decent Linux drivers. Hardware suppliers just don't like Linux.

Why is my printer not working all the sudden?
Fresh install of Mint 17.3 printer setup just fine.

Couple of months later... Printer doesn't have the programs it needs to work.

How do I fix this issue? Newbie who has read a lot of forms and nothing is working for me. Would love to understand more about the cups system and why this happened. I am positive it is something that I did, maybe an update or upgrade. Just need some guidance please.

Hi, I have Epson WF3640. I using Mint18.1 64.
There is no driver that support this printer on Linux. I am willing to change OS, and maybe use Ubuntu instead, just to get support.dont know what else to do. I am new at this this. Thanks

Hey guys,

I just bought an Epson Workforce WF-7610 and I have a slight problem: If I print multiple copies of a PDF with a single page, and in the print options chose "One Sided", it will always print an extra blank page between the copies, so it prints 2n sheets. If I set the options to "two sided long edge", it apparently "prints" the blank page to the backside of the sheet and I get n sheets (n beeing the number of copies).

I guess this is not normal behaviour? I installed the driver by simply selecting the network driver in the mint printer option, which then downloaded printer drivers itself.

Oh, and I noticed that I can set the print resolution to only to 300 dpi.

Ideas?
