How To install Epson Scanner Drivers

How To install Epson Scanner Drivers

Post by Cyberat » Tue Jan 30, 2018 4:17 am

As of today, I have not found any drivers for Linux for my Epson Perfection V-370 brand new scanner (switched to Linux a month after purchase) on the website suggested or the official Epson Websites.
I have downloaded and successfully installed some generic all inclusive Epson drivers specifically targeted for Linux Mint, however neither Simple Scan, Image Scan or XSane detect my Epson Scanner.
I do have an old CanoScan Lide25 that is detected and installed, no problem, to my surprise. In Windows 7 the latest updates eliminated the twain functionality for it, exhausted all avenues but roll back some unknown update to make it work, as I thought it was broken, so I bought the Epson. But I would very much like to use the Epson scanner as it has other desirable features like film & negative holders, as well as a higher quality optical DPI resolution (not interpolated).
(Also, in the future I may build a new Windows PC and keep this laptop as a backup on the side.)

Thanks in Advance for any suggestions,
C.R.

Please note the following:

1. This has been posted in the Tutorial Section and should have been posted in Hardware Support or any other Support Section.
2. The URL for obtaining Linux drivers for Epson devices is http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/searc . ch/?OSC=LX
3. The name of the Epson device has to be entered correctly. There is no entry for Epson Perfection V-370 but there is an entry for V370.

After you have typed V370 into the space asking for the Product Code, click on the magnifying lens and you will eventually get to the Linux Scanner Driver Download Page. Select «deb» and 32 or 64 bit as required. Extract and install instructions are provided.

I found these Linux drivers for my Epson V500 Photo Scanner. They are the European Version of the V500 which is the 770. Maybe you can get them to work with your machine. Let me know.

Download this Folder: https://app.box.com/s/ffpoubqg8q8l4n46zwcparn3vdd8e97h this is from my box dot com folder.

Download Vuescan: https://www.hamrick.com/old-versions.html I am using the 64 bit version for Mint 18.3 (ubuntu 16.04)

Extract both files into folders.

With the Epson V500 Scanner drivers (iscan-gt-x770-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb) or whichever file you are using. There are 4 files for different Versions of Linux.

follow these instructions:

Copyright (C) 2015 SEIKO EPSON CORPORATION

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

tar xaf iscan-gt-x770-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb.tar.gz [url]https://imgur.com/a/DKQ4S[/url]
cd iscan-gt-x770-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb
./install.sh

in a terminal window.

You will be asked for your password to acquire the privileges needed
to install software on your system. This works the same way as with
your regular software installation procedure.

This scanner driver bundle contains all components of Image Scan! for
Linux that are needed for the scanner you selected and a convenience
«install.sh« script. The script can be used to install everything
with a single command.

If you are curious about what the script does, run it as follows

That will display the command(s) it will run to install everything.
For a simple help message, try the «—help« option.

The components in the «plugins/« folder are non-free, in the sense
that they do not give you all the freedoms normally associated with
`Free Software`_.

With the exception of the «network» plugin (only included with the
generic iscan-bundle) these plugins are needed for the scanner you
selected. The «network» plugin, however, is optional. If you only
connect your scanner via USB (or SCSI) you do not need it. To tell
the «install.sh« script that you do not want it installed, use

The «network» plugin is installed by default because almost all recent
EPSON scanners and all-in-ones support access via a (wireless) network
connection.

To be completely honest, the GUI of Image Scan! for Linux contains a
non-free image processing module as well. It will not work without
this module.

While the «install.sh« script is expected to work as intended in the
vast majority of scenarios it might not work as intended for you. If
that is the case, please pay attention to the error messages in the
output that is produced. That should help you find a workaround by
yourself or in the list below.

No permission/privileges to install

This is likely to give messages that include phrases such as «are you
root?«, «Root privileges are required« and «you need to be root«
(possibly in your language). The «install.sh« script assumes that
you can use «sudo« to obtain «root« status. If

Once you have installed the drivers. then Extract the downloaded Vuescan Folder to your Home Folder or wherever you want it. and Make a shortcut on your desktop to activate the Vuescan. Make sure to install ALL THE SOFTWARE before you plug in your Epson V500 Scanner. IT Works for me. It’s working on a Laptop and my main computer.

I am an absolute noob at Linux, and I am sure these instructions are maybe not perfect for an advanced user. but having never have used Linux at all. some of my instructions may seem simple. I am struggling to learn. lol. Just wanted to share my problem solved.

How To install Epson Scanner Drivers

How To install Epson Scanner Drivers

Post by 3pinner » Sat Aug 24, 2013 10:06 pm

I just purchased an Epson WF-3520 to replace an HP printer. Got installed with no problem except the scanner was not recognized. I had already installed the printer driver and the printer worked fine. Just Simple Scan was inoperative.

When I opened Simple Scan I would get an error message Scanning device not found.
Took a bit of research but I found a fix I wanted to share.
Those of you with a lot more experience than me (most of you for certain) please chime in or provide a better way. I hope this helps someone else with the same issue.

1) Does :Linux see the scanner?

The scanner was listed here, so I knew it could be detected by the system.
So it could be a permissions issue, driver issue or both.

2) Are you in the groups given permission to use the printer?

Check groups. You and other users should be in the lp and lpadmin group.

Tried both commands again, same results. Tried opening Simple Scan with same error message.

3) Find missing drivers.

they can be found at the Epson website.
[url]http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/
[/url]
After entering your printer model (In my case WF-3520) look for the download
Scanner Driver Core package and Data package.

It will take you to a page listing all the Epson units covered. Click Accept and another pane will open with the available drivers.
Look for and download the data files
iscan-data_1.23.0-1_all.deb

then the scanner driver

usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb if you are running a 64 bit system
or
iscan_2.29.1-5

usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb if you are running a 32 bit system

Further information as to which one to use can be found on the Epson web site here:
[url]http://download.ebz.epson.net/faq/linux/faq_ls_00002.html
[/url]
4) Load the drivers in this sequence,
iscan-data,
then iscan 64 bit or 32 bit.

After doing that, my scanner works fine.

I am trying to scan with Linux Mint 16 Mate Edition using an EPSON WF-3520.

I downloaded and installed the latest debs from the Epson site
iscan-data_1.25.0-1_all.deb
iscan_2.29.3-1

I made sure I was in the lp, lpadmin, and scanner groups.

scanimage -L is finicky. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it hangs.
When it works I get
$ scanimage -L
device `epkowa:usb:003:006′ is a Epson WF-3520/3530/3540 Series flatbed scanner

sane-find-scanner gives all sorts of permission errors
$ sane-find-scanner
