Where do I get drivers for an Epson SX 130 (SOLVED)
« on: July 20, 2014, 05:16:13 pm »
I have installed Peppermint 5 on this machine but I only have a Windross disc that came with the Epson SX130 Printer/Scanner.
Where can I download the Linux drivers.

Hi Mark,
Is this what you want ?
My grandson was using this machine in Win 7 and when I shut down there was 32 updates.
I would like to remove all trace of windross and just run Peppermint. Shall I start a new thread in Peppermint Forum.

probably best



As for the SX130 drivers .. I'd expect these to still work:

hence my "deja vous" comment ;)

Hi Mark,
I have installed the printer and printed an impressive test page.
Thank you again.

OK, try these links .. and install them in this order too:-

epson-inkjet-printer-201101w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb
then
iscan-data_1.29.0-2_all.deb
then
iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb

Where can I get the 64 bit drivers for this Epson SX130 ?
When I use these drivers the first says , after installing, "Broken Dependencies"
