Thread: Epson WF-2860 scanner configuration

    Default Epson WF-2860 scanner configuration

    Hi, I'm trying to configure an EPSON WF-2860 printer/scanner. I can successfully configure the printer but I'm not sure how to make the scanner to work. Epson provides the imagescan V3 software in https://support.epson.net/linux/en/imagescanv3.php but only for Opensuse LEAP 15.2. If I try to install it, it asks for libboost_filesystem 1.66 , however Tumbleweed comes with the 1.75 version. Is it possible to modify the requirements of the rpm package?

    Cheers

    I am lucky as my Epson printer/scanner is automatically reconisesed. Before it was I used to use the IScan packages from Packman:-

    Interesting, thanks for the reference. I managed to make the scan to work using the utsushi package from the official repositories. To make the network functionality to work it is necessary to install the networkscan package from Epson. I could install the one provided for Leap 15.2 and copy the executable to
    Code:
    /usr/libexec/utsushi/
    . Then it seems to work fine (inside the official rpm s from epson I saw they also use utsushi). Still, I'd be interesting to know if someone has managed to make imagescan to work. I also tried to install the source rpm package with no success.
