I am searching for a printer driver for my Epson Stylus NX420 Printer/Scanner. Should I use a generic Epson driver from the extensive default list, or is there a better driver out there? re: I'm running OpenSuse 11.2 and KDE
I've been trying to get my Epson NX420 printer to scan for about three months now, and I finally got it working. Here's how: 1. Go to [URL] and search for your printer. Select distribution and version and answer a couple of other questions. 2. Download pipslite_1.5.0-2_i386.deb, (or the 64-bit version), and all the iscan*.deb files (again, appropriate to your system). 3. [CRITICAL] Go to [URL] and download this 8.04 package which worked just fine for me on 10.10. 4. Use the Software Center or GDebi or sudo dpkg -i the .debs in this order:
1) libtdl3, which is a dependency for Step 2. 2) pipslite 3) iscan-data 4) iscan-network 5) iscan (If you use a USB connection, you don't need the iscan-network file.) This got my NX420 scanner up and running just fine. Installing libtdl3 was the key; in fact, I used the Debian Lenny package.
I'm new to openSUSE and have only used Ubuntu. I have a Epson Stylus NX110 all in one printer. All I really care about is the print capabilities, scanning is a secondary issue. Suse recognizes the printer but doesn't have a driver for it. On Ubuntu I had to use the NX105 drivers but they worked just fine.
I want to setup my Epson Stylus (515W)-A letter before the 5 but not sure what. Basically when I open CUPS I click on add on new printer, I enter add printer but then the page says access denied. Also this is a network printer.
I got my Epson stylus NX510 all-in-one printer (just the actual printer worked, couldn't get the scanner recognized) working in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. I'm currently attempting a dual boot with OpenSuse 11.3, but when I go to download the driver for it like I did in Ubuntu (and it worked) I get the following error messages:
I am trying to set up my Epson Stylus SX420W printer (via USB) on a fresh install of 11.4. I have found a driver called 'epson-inkjet-printer-nx420-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm', which I guess is right for my Intel Core i5-system on the Avasys-site that Epson refers to for Linux drivers.
I have downloaded the driver and installed it via Right-Click -> Open With -> Install/Remove Software, which seemed to go well. When I open Yast -> Hardware -> Printer -> Add, my printer is found all right, but 'No matching driver found'. Iam quite new to Linux.
just started to use Linux and after installing a few distro's have settled for Opensuse 11.2 gnome as it suits me, however i seem to be having problems finding a driver for the Epson Stylus R240 printer. Is there an alternative driver that is compatible for this printer, (I really don't want to have to go back to windows because of a printer driver)
Ive just installed Fed 13 KDE, but my Epson Stylus DX7450, is not recognized and installed. (works fine on Fed 13 Gnome). So i went to Printer Config. in system settings. New printer/ New network printer. where i get an error message "Not authorized - this password may be incorrect". I carry on and input my printer details, but at the end I get another error message, "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-forbidden'."
i use linux OS with ubuntu and i have installed my printer (epson stylus photo tx650) but when i print it prints black pages on and on and doesn't stop,though if i print using my windows xp laptop and using the same USB cable, it prints,hence this shows me that some settings on printer configuration are not well set and i fail to know which are these settings. its only printing i cant do but i can scan and even photocopy.
Did someone has been able to compile pipslite_1.4.0-5.tar.gz and iscan_2.23.0-3.tar.gz (avasys drivers) on fedora 12? I have an epson stylus sx600fw and it was working perfectly in fedora 9 with the avasys drivers but after upgrade to f12 I cannot install the new driver
I currently have an EPSON Stylus SX400 that I've connected to my Dell Desktop running Ubuntu Lucid Linux. Though Ubuntu installed the printer at a great speed , it didn't install the scanner. Where can I get drivers to install the scanners, all the software I use do not discover a device?
I was able to get my Epson Stylus NX510 printer up and running (after much issue), but I can't get the scanner working. I'm on a laptop, and the printer/scanner is wifi enabled and broadcasts with its own IP address. I can print with no problem, but xsane and simple scan don't recognize the scanner. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.
I made a fresh install of openSuse 11.3 and can't make to work my printer (Epson Stylus T23) The system detected the printer, and I installed "pips-st20-SuSE10.3-3.1.0-CG.install" driver. In this way, printer work properly in openSuse 11.2
I installed "gutenprint 5.2.5-1lsb3.2" as suggested at 11.2 upgrade to 11.3 - Epson printer broken.
Anyway, when I send something to print, CUPS say: Printer status: Idle - "Processing page 1..." Job state: stopped "/usr/lib/cups/filter/pips-wrapper failed"
Now to printers. The system searched for drivers-not found. This one doesn't seem to be supported. But is it ok to install some epson driver which would be closest to this model? And I count that only printing will work, but not scanning.
I am unable to install the drivers in OpenSuse 11.3 for an Epson Stylus SX218. The printer is not Linux friendly and the drivers hard to find but I have been able to install it in Ubuntu 10.04 and thought the procedure would be the same but it is not.
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.0 (64 bit). I have an Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer that used to work just fine. Apparently there was an update to the CUPS software that I applied and now the printer is no longer working.
Through examining the error_log file in /var/log/cups I found that two files were missing from /usr/lib/cups/filter. These files existed in the /usr/lib64/cups/filter directory so I linked them to the /usr/lib/cups/filter directory. That cleared up two errors.
When I send a "Print Self Test Page" command from the CUPS Printers page, I get the following error:
Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Print-Job (ipp://localhost:631/printers/EPSON_Stylus_Photo_R300) from localhost
When I attempt to send a print job from an application like gedit or OpenOffice Writer, I get the following error:
Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Send-Document (ipp://localhost:631/printers/EPSON_Stylus_Photo_R300) from localhost
I've crawled all through the openSUSE forums and 'googled' all sorts of variations for these errors and found nothing useful. I'm hoping someone here might have a clue as to where I might go next to fix this.
Like I said, it was working before and now it's not so there must be something in a recent CUPS release that has messed things up.
one month at this stage and noticed recently that all automatic updates to my system have ceased, so I tried a zypper update from the terminal yesterday and believe it or not I got 1110 updates, about 7 deletions a 3 programs were changing architecture. This went all all day yesterday and finished sometime early this morning when I had to force a reboot as the shutdown button did nothing. After all those updates I do not notice any version upgrades for a few things I checked like Office, Amarok, DigiKAM etc but I am back to a most annoying problem that I had in my first few days i.e. my printer an Epson Stylus Color 760 is totally messing up 2nd and subsequent pages in a printout.
The last time this happened it seemed to sort itself out because deleting the printers discovered and their drivers did nothing. I am sorry to say it is putting me off SUSE 11.4 which I had liked BUT it is so frustating when I can't eben print more than one page correctly. I have come from Windows 7 where these problems did not exist.
I bought a multifunction stylus sx218 Espon model and I can not run the scanner function. I did some research and found a few solutions and very functional. I hope someone solves the problem. My version of openSUSE 11.2.
I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for almost a year now and I'm really happy with it. I completely uninstall windows from my computer I'm able to do everything a used to do on Windows now on Linux, and even more... except for one thing... I cannot see the ink levels of my printer. It's a multifunction Epson Stylus TX110. I installed escputil and used the command "sudo escputil -i -u -r /dev/usblp0", the printer then starts making noise and no matter how long I wait, it never presents any info or displays the message: "device is busy" with no info about the ink levels.
I just got an epson stylus nx515 and I am currently hooking it up to a laptop running windows7. My next step is to hook it up to my computer running Kubuntu 9.10. I see no drivers or support for linux at epsons site. is there a patch that will let my printer software be installed on my computer?
I'm trying to set up this printer with my Ubuntu OS (Lucid), but it doesn't seem to be working. I'm trying to install the driver for the printer but I keep getting:
Code: eiven@eiven-laptop:~/Desktop/pipslite-1.4.0$ ./configure checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk
I have an Epson CX4300 on Ubuntu 10.10 and I can't get it to scan. I loaded the driver for CX4200 since CX4300 isn't listed in [URL]
sane-find-scanner finds the scanner but scanimage doesn't: ilan@ilan-main:~$ sane-find-scanner -q found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x083f) at libusb:003:002 ilan@ilan-main:~$ scanimage -L
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
XSane also reports No Devices available and number 4 in their possible reasons is The backend is not loaded by SANE (man sane-dll). I get: ilan@ilan-main:~$ man sane-dll No manual entry for sane-dll
I do get a man for sane-epson so that hints that the epson driver exists. The fact that sane-dll doesn't seem to exist is probably the problem. I'm using libsane in the Synaptic Package Manager and that is supposed to supply the backends. Should it include sane-dll?
