Thread: Help needed setting up Epson Stylus SX420W printer/scanner

    Default Help needed setting up Epson Stylus SX420W printer/scanner

    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'.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Any help would be appreciated - I am quite new to Linux.

    Well - now I'm even more confused ...

    There seems to be another set of drivers for the same printer on the Avasys-site: 日本のものづくりをITで支援する|アヴァシス株式会社

    But when I try to install the printer driver on that page (after having uninstalled the first one) I get this message:

    error: Failed dependencies:
    libjpeg is needed by pipslite-1.5.0-2.i386
    libltdl.so.3 is needed by pipslite-1.5.0-2.i386

    ?

    that japanese link doesn't work for me

    have you installed the pipslite packages??
    They are also needed in addition to the drivers specific to your model.

    Thank you for replying.

    This is the site with Avasys-drivers for Epson printers: All-in-Ones (Multifunction Inkjet Printers) | AVASYS CORPORATION

    If I choose my model in the drop down box at the top of the page, I get at page with 'Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P) for Linux'. From there I can download the 'epson-inkjet-printer-nx420-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm' that I mention in my first post, which seems to install correctly, but doesn't work.

    On the other hand, if I don't choose my printer model at the top of the page All-in-Ones (Multifunction Inkjet Printers) | AVASYS CORPORATION I can find another driver further down on the same page - the one called 'pipslite-1.5.0-2.i386.rpm'. This is the one I mention in my second post that doesn't even install, but gives me the error message i mention above.

    It's unclear to me what the difference is between the two kinds of drivers?

    I don't know about the pipslite packages you ask about. If i search for pipslite in Yast, I don't get any results. I have even tried searching for pipslite at software.opensuse.org without luck.

    Can you install libjpeg and libltdl through yast?

    I already have:

    libjpeg-turbo
    libjpeg62
    libjpeg62-32bit

    libltdl7
    libltdl7-32bit

    I can install:

    libjpeg8
    libjpeg8-32bit

    libltdl3
    libltdl3-32bit

    plus some libjpeg development tools.

    Should I install all this before the pipslite-1.5.0-2.i386.rpm? (I guess I don't need the development tools?)

    Did you install the 64-bit version of opensuse?

    OK well I'm stumped unless you need to select the driver from a list when trying to add the printer. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    My printer isn't on the list that I can select from when adding the printer. I have tried some that 'are close', but they don't work.

    But thanks for trying!
