Ubuntu scanner driver for Epson Stylus SX440W
« on: February 27, 2013, 06:07:24 pm »
In january I had a computer crash. No problem, I thought, I have a backup for everything but the driver scanner; but this I can download any time at the website where I found it 9 months ago (avasys.jp). However, on the avasys.jp website I found only a transfer notice: they had handed over the Epson scanner drivers to the Epson Download Service at the end of 2012. At the Epson Download Service I typed in the model of my copier (Stylus SX440W) and got the answer: „no scanner drivers for Linux“. I phoned the Epson Customer Service and got the  answer: „Epson doesn't support Ubuntu“.     

With a Google search I obtained the correct data package – deb package (iscan-data_1.13.0-1_all.deb).
However, the core package offered  (iscan_2.28.1-3.ltdl7_i386.deb)  is not the right one for me.

I need the core package – deb 64 bit package [libltdl7] for Ubuntu 8.10 or later:  iscan_2.28.1-3.ltdl7_amd64.deb

Do you know anyone who could send me a copy of this core package? 
My e-mail address is  saller.jk@alice.it

Thanks for your help and best regards
Hanskarl

Hi Hanskarl, and welcome to the forum :)

I'm not sure who you talked to at Epson, but he needs sacking .. the Linux drivers ARE on the Epson website including .deb files that work in Ubuntu. ???

That said, they are impossible to link to directly.

So go here:
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=LX

and in the search box enter:
SX440W
and hit enter.

On the next page, select
Scanner Driver > Core Package/Data Package
and hit the Download button.

On the next page, cliick the Accept button.

A list of drivers will appear underneth the Accept button including:
iscan_2.29.1-5~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb
Click the Download button.

Hi

I got the same problem Mark did. However When I download the suggested file I can't seem to install it.
Shall I choose "Save" or "open with.."?
Either way when I click on the file a new window opens with "Iscan" and states the the file is not supported.

What to do?

/Thankfull for help

Hi Juslina, and welcome to the forum :)

Can you open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run this command:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
then post what is returned in the terminal back here.

I take it you already have the printer working, so just need the scanner drivers ?

How will the printer/scanner be connected .. USB or wireless ?

I'm sorry ... call me stupid I don't follow.

I Have the terminal open and have tried to write the full address to the file.
"/home/juslina/hämtningar/sx440" (I've renamned the file)
The answer is " The file or folder does not exist"

I've tried writing "cd /home/juslina/hämtningar/sx440". But I get the same result.

No. I have not got the printer to work with this computer. Only others. It will be used via wifi.

I can't tell you which files to get, and what to do with them til I know which kernel you're running.

Hit these 3 keys at the same time Ctrl+Alt+T .. a terminal should open.

in the terminal type:-

uname -a

and hit the enter key

then post back here what is returned form that command.

As long as you have an Epson Stylus SX440W ...

OK, download these 3 files, and install them in this order.

1)
http://a1227.g.akamai.net/f/1227/40484/1d/download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/01/00/01/68/76/f2a2f9e9878258febd03bea757ea65c839a1a9ca/epson-inkjet-printer-201105w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb

2)
http://a1227.g.akamai.net/f/1227/40484/1d/download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/01/00/02/15/80/47d9593f94a207abc98bce8fdc76a78984e3cf1e/iscan-data_1.22.0-1_all.deb

3)
http://a1227.g.akamai.net/f/1227/40484/1d/download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/01/00/02/15/80/139994fc6afff8cc0eeed32a2008320218786cba/iscan_2.29.1-5~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb


You should be able to install them by just double-clicking them (one at a time) .. but be sure to install them in the right order.

Once you've installed them .. check if your printer and scanner work when connected by USB

Then we'll move on to wireless if necessary.
