OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Install Pipslite-1.4.0-5 For An Epson Workforce 610 Printer?
Jul 25, 2010
I downloaded the .rpm file for pipslite-1.4.0-5 and tried to install it using YaST, but it needs "libgdk-1.2.so.0". I was given the error "nothing provides libgdk-1.2.so.0 needed by pipslite-1.4.0-5.i386. I am currently running 32-bit OpenSUSE 11.3. Can anybody help me with installing pipslite? I googled libgdk and I notice that it's in gtk+, but I don't know how to install that either.
I ordered a new printer yesterday... I am intending on using it with my Macs, but I am thinking I may want to print on it from my HP netbook running suse linux..The printer is an EPSON WorkForce 610 C11CA50201.
Does wifi printing work on linux? I haven't read anything saying it does, nor have I seen anything that says it doesn't.I also wanted to know if wifi scanning worked.
I've got 11.3 Gnome on my lenovo desktop and I'm trying to connect an Epson Workforce 610 via a wired network. I installed the driver from AVASYS and Linux Standard Base in accordance with instructions. The printer is found on the network but I still can't print.
I am running ubuntu 10.04. I have an Epson Wprkforce 310 4 in 1. Connection is USB. I can print. I have searched for proper drivers for scanner and fax. I have found nothing for fax. I have found and installed at one time or another the following scanner drivers:
The 1st 3 installed but nothing happened. When I installed the 4th, I got a message telling me about the scan app I have installed(default with ubuntu install). Hope welled up inside. When I opened the scan app, it said it could not find a scanner. WF 310 was on hoping for a driver.
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:
root@Shuttle:/home/tfrei# 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). Here is my sane-find-scanner output:
root@Shuttle:/home/tfrei# sane-find-scanner # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
Now the only thing is that it is streaking in color mode. It gives a light shade at regular intervals down the page. I am somewhat new to Ubuntu and open source, converting from windows. I tried printing in windows to see if it was the printer. It prints fine in windows. [URL]
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.
I have an Epson Stylus Photo PX710W. It worked fine in opensuse 11.2, but I've now done a fresh install of opensuse 11.3 and I can't get the printer to work. I set it up as for 11.2, so I'm sure it should just work.
CUPS job page says:
stopped "/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr/cups/lib/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper failed" and CUPS error log says: PID 1294 (/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr/cups/lib/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper) stopped with status 127!
While the scanner also isn't working, I think this is a separate issue as the CUPS log seems to suggest it is connecting to the printer, + I'm using network and usb connection.
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'm trying to configure my SX205 printer. It is well recognized, and Gutenprint driver are available. But the printer doesn't work, here are the error messages : The PPD version (6341210) is not compatible with Gutenprint 5.2.5. I am on opensuse 11.3; so the gutenprint version is 5.2.4, i don't know why it talk about 5.2.5. I have tried cups-genppdupdate but it doesn't change anything.
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 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.
I wonder if you can help me please. I purchased an Acer Aspire One netbook running Linpus Linux on it for my daughter. She absolutely love it and so far I have managed to update Open Office to Open Office 3.0.1, installed Skype and installed Firefox 3.She has been doing her homework and would like to print it off but I can't get my Epson DX8450 to work with it. I tried installing drivers from http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do (which is where Epson tell you to go). I installed some drivers and the printer started to print it was doing some strange things like printer two lines of the same single line, missing the top off the letters and putting two line spaces in between each line.
I am all new to this but does anybody advice or even provide step by step instructions on how to install the printer (if they have this model printer themselves).Also how to I remove the drivers that I installed last night that obviously are incompatible?
I have been using the Lucid since about Xmas time as my main Distro. Up until Sunday when I did a fresh Install of Lucid 10.4 final release my epson printer was working, now it isn't even listed in the printer list, but it is still found with lsusb.
I have installed fresh fedora 12 & installed many softwares in rpm & tar forms , also i used yum to do installation, all these attempts were successful. But i could not install & configure Epson Dot matrix FX-2175 printer. Epson Dot matrix FX-2175 printer worked fine in my earlier distro fc11.
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.
using "pclinuxos"my all in one epson sx100 psc is installed and working ,as is the scanner,they are both configured in the control center,?? how do i view the ,"change ink,clean print head options please" .you may have read an earlier post from me (now clicked as solved) when i was using "mint 9", i never did get it to work,
Since 2009 we are using Linux Redhat and all printers are working well. But when I have done Redhat's UPDATE I found all matrix printers (Epson LQ-590) not printing. Those printers are connected to the network by a printer server. When I do "lpr -Pprintername /etc/hosts" the printer prints the file but it not formats characters.
To print from my application, I create a file driver which looks like "lpr -PP112" in /usr/spool/uv/t112.dvr The first version was looked like #!/bin/bash # # $6: Imprimante (nom Universe) # export LOGFILE=/tmp/uv-smbprint-$6 date > $LOGFILE echo $6 >> $LOGFILE cat - > /tmp/prn.$6.$$ cat /tmp/prn.$6.$$ |lpr -P $6 -o raw -h >> $LOGFILE 2>&1 rm -f /tmp/prn.$6.$$ exit 0
Now this old version works with the HP LaserJet printers. But on the matrix Epson printer it can't work I put lpr - Pprintername or lp -onobanner -Dprintername to print something. The problem steel in formatting text when I print on all matrix Epson printers.
