epson WF-2660 MFP ubuntu 18.4 says no scanner deteced but does print without problems

OK being new to ubuntu I was pulling my hair out with all the complicated (to a new user) suggestions but I thought I should post how I fixed my problem. I use a VPN & I guess the IP address conflicts with the router address so I turned the VPN off & guess what the scanner is then detected & scans (printer is wi fi connected) so then I turn the VPN on & at least I can scan & am now happy

Syntax error when installing Epson Linux scanner driver (for v550)

I have an Epson v550 scanner, and have downloaded the latest official driver file.

http://support.epson.net/linux/en/iscan.php?model=perfection-v550&version=2.30.4

When I extract the file, and try to install the iscan-data package, I get the following error:

sudo dpkg -i iscan-data_1.39.1-2_all.deb  [sudo] password for brylie:  (Reading database ... 342144 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack iscan-data_1.39.1-2_all.deb ... Unpacking iscan-data (1.39.1-2) over (1.39.1-2) ... Setting up iscan-data (1.39.1-2) ... expr: syntax error: missing argument after ‘-’ tail: invalid number of lines: ‘/lib/udev/rules.d/60-libsane.rules’ 

Note: I get the same error when running ./install.sh, it is just related to the iscan-data package.

How can I fix the syntax error that is causing the .deb installation to break?

Having trouble installing epson driver, seems related to Python?

I am having trouble installing the driver for my Epson scanner and I have had some issues in the past installing other things. It was suggested that this was a duplicate and I ran into the same error. When I do ./install.sh (for the driver) or something similar, as here, I get the following error code:

Epson XP-245 can’t found any drives and even don’t print

I just bought an Epson printer XP-245 I tried with the normal setup connecting wireless but it not printing or scanning. I searched too but nothing worked for me. My system is a hp laptop db1015na with Ryzen 5 3500U and running Ubuntu 10.04.03. I found a way round using the e-mail system and with my smartphone but I still like to print and scan without jumping hopes

Thanks in advance

Epson XP-245 scanner driver for Ubuntu 18.04 on 64bit (x86_64)

When visiting http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModuleFromResult and searching for device model “XP-245” and OS “Linux” the driver recommendations are

XP-243 245 247 … Printer Driver Linux 1.7.0 ESC/P-R Driver (generic driver) All language 07-25-2019
XP-243 245 247 … Printer Driver Linux 1.1.0 Epson Printer Utility All language 07-25-2019
XP-243 245 247 … Scanner Driver Linux 3.57.0 All-in-one package All language 07-25-2019

When following the download button hyperlink for the “Scanner Driver Linux”, accepting the license agreement and following the “Package Download Page” hyperlink one is redirected to http://support.epson.net/linux/en/imagescanv3.php .

For Ubuntu 18.04(LTS) there is only a 64bit(amd64), no 64bit(x86_64) package option. How can I get the scanner working? Some blog posts mention something that scanners are working with xsane, not with simple-scan. Is it possible to get the scanner working with simple-scan?

Side note: For the “ESC/P-R Driver (generic driver)” drivers there is a package option epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm which can be installed with alien. Printing works just fine.

Configuring the EPSON L455 Scanner on Ubuntu

everything good?

Despite being a software engineer at the same time, I’m new here. I recently adopted ubuntu linux (18.04.2 LTS) as OS for my development environment. However I need to keep the use of administrative activities on the same machine and I am having difficulty using the Scanner of my Epson L455 All-In-One.

I can print normally and have installed the EPSON driver Image Scan 3.55.0 (64 bit) to configure the scanner. In Image Scan I can even preview the scan, however, when I put it to scan: it creates the file in the folder I chose with the name I defined; the multifunctional informs that it is scanning, but at the end of the process the file disappears from the folder and I am not finding the file anywhere else.

Has anyone gone through this and have some guidance to help me solve?

Thanks for any tips or good intentions. Thank you.
