Ubuntu :: Printing Configurations - Epson Stylus DX4450

Mar 20, 2011

I've been having some problems recently with Ubuntu and my Printer. I find that when using ubuntu, ink drains much faster, and constant refills are required. I know the printer works fine, I use it on windows when ubuntu Fails. Today I was trying to print a colour document out, this was with default config, standard print quality etc., this was the result. On the left you can see the document before printing, and on the right the printed document. (Click to open image in new window)

Example 1 >
Example 2 >

How to just get normal quality printing, without having to revert to ... windows? How can I consult the ink levels of the DX4450 from Ubuntu. I have tried both MtInk and Epsutils and both failed.

Hardware :: Scanner Not Recognized In Ubuntu Epson Stylus NX510 Printer/scanner?

Aug 15, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Setting Up Epson Stylus SX420W Printer / Scanner

Mar 17, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Scanner Hp Scanjet 3570c - Only Scan In Color

Feb 10, 2009

Whenever I try to scan documents (OpenSuse 11.1) with any of the available tools (such as scanlite, kooka, or xsane), I can only scan in color. Moreover, the result is basically unusable. I shows a turquoise background of differing intensity at various places. Why isn't there a possibility to scan black and white, grayscale, etc.? Seems like scanning still is a problem in Linux. I really don't want to have to "fall back" to M$-Windows for scanning, but that seems to be the only solution at the moment

Slackware :: Scanner Not Recognized On Epson Workforce 633 With 13.37 32-bit?

I had a similar problem on 13.1, but was solved by this forum by copying 80-sane.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/ . With 13.37 the same trick doesn't work. Here is my scanimage output:

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).

Debian :: Sane - Share Epson Scanner Over Network

Apr 29, 2010

I have a debian server (squeezzy) amd 64, running with an epson BX-300f pluged to USB. And I want to share the scanner over my network. So let's do that, Intalled sane, sane utils, iscan, which I've downloaded from epson drivers and wich include epkowa drivers fro scanner to work..
after that I installed on my system (Ubuntu 9.10) xsane... on console I type:

root@bruno-laptop:/home/bruno# scanimage -L
*** glibc detected *** scanimage: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00be63d0 ***
WARNING: Unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable, path=/, member=Introspect
device 'v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname HP Webcam virtual device
device 'net:' is a unknown manufacturer unknown device -- use override to select flatbed scanner
device 'net:' is a Epson Stylus BX300F/TX300F/NX300/ME Office 600F flatbed scanner
device 'net:' is a Epson Stylus BX300F/TX300F/NX300/ME Office 600F flatbed scanner

I don't know why I find so much things, if i only have one scanner. Then I opened xsane and found the scanner over network. I chose the epson with epkowa drivers I try to scan something but it dont output nothing and sometimes it gives me "end of file reached". I can put whatever config files here if you want to, just ask. One time it worked fine.. but only half of an image...

Ubuntu :: Epson Scanner Not Detected - No Usbfs Module

Mar 7, 2010

Have an Epson Expression 1640 XL A3 scanner (usb & network interface card). Bus=0002 Device=004 its usb ID is 0x04b8 0x0109 I have never been able to connect the scanner using the network - if anybody can advise, I would be very grateful. Quite happy to use this if usb is going to be a problem The scanner has worked very well through the usb and wask working well with 9.04(32bit). I have bought a new machine and did a fresh install of 9.10 (64bit) and the scanner is not detected.

xsane detects my webcams (vl4:/dev/video*)but no scanner Have run sudo xsane-find-scanner - only the webcams are detected Have edited /etc/sane.d/epson2.conf - added scanner usb ID, and added the lines:- usb /dev/usb/scanner0 usb /dev/usbscanner0 as advised in one of the threads in this forum sudo scanimage -L gave this-

WARNING: Unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable, path=/, member=Introspect
device `v4l:/dev/video1' is a Noname Creative Labs Webcam Pro Ex virtual device
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 virtual device


Do I need to select M for these three modules?

the following had [M] -
USB Printer support
Microtek X6USB scanner support

It looks like the scanner module has not been loaded, and possibly the usbfs yet usb webcam and card readers are accessible. I have tried to keep outputs relevant & short. If I have omitted anything, you would like full results or any other information.

Ubuntu :: Epson NX420 Printer With Working Scanner

Dec 5, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Epson Stylus Cx4300 Scanner Not Working?

Jan 4, 2011

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?

Slackware :: Getting Epson CX5000 Scanner Working With Sane?

Mar 30, 2010

I have been given an Epson CX5000 3-in-1 that I only want to use the scanner part of (I have a laser and hate buying ink). The scanner works, tested under windoze, but xsane and scanimage -L fail to find it. But, lsusb does:
$ /sbin/lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b8:082b Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus DX5050

I saw a post about it under ubuntu that you had to modify
Which doesn't exist on my Slackware 13 install. I hope this Epson runs faster than my Canon FB630U, which takes almost a four minutes to scan a 5x6 photo and forget scanning an 8.5x11 page (go take a nap).

Slackware :: Scanner Permission - Epson Workforce 630 On 32bit 13.1

Jan 27, 2011

I've done some investigating on the threads, but none of the normal fixes for this permission problem work. I've added myself to the scanner and lp groups. I've also added the right device code to the epson configuration file under /etc/sane.d/ . Scanner is recognized and works under root.

When I "scanimage >somefile" in the console I get a permission error when I'm a regular user; when I do the same under root, it works. Likewise, my graphical scan frontends report that they cannot find the scanner when I am a regular user. I see alien bob had an old workaround at [url] but I don't think 13.1 has hotplug set up the same way anymore.

Slackware :: 13.37 And EPSON Stylus TX120 Scanner Not Found

I'm trying to set up my EPSON Stylus TX120 multifunction, and i've successfully installed the printer, and for the scanner i followd the instructions from avasys page: installed iscan-data and iscan (core) compiling them from source with no problems using --prefix=/usr in both packages, but when i run sane-find-scanner no scanner is found. If i try using scanimage -L only my webcam is listed, so, is there anything else i have to do in order to get my scanner detected in slack 13.37? I've run both commands as root, by the way.

Ubuntu :: Why Can't 9.10 Find My Epson TX110 Printer/scanner?

I can't use my printer/scanner - it is an Epson TX110. When I try to use Image scan - I get the message; "Could not send the command to scanner. Check the scanner's status."

There is nothing wrong with the MFC apart from not working on Ubuntu 9.10. I have had it connected to another computer that ran Ubuntu 9.01 (I think that was the release used) and it ran fine but now I'm stuck -

I have drivers installed but cant get them to co-operate with me.
