I’ve been having lots of “fun” trying to get a couple of printers to run on my desktop. I have had partial success with a Brother HL-5370 - it works so at least I can keep OpenSuse.
Now, onto the next step - getting my Epson WF-7510 printer-scanner-fax to intstall. First, this a new install of opensuse 15.1 . The only things I have installed were an online update, libusb-0_1-4 and libusb-0_1-4-32bit and the Brother HL-5370.
What I’m not sure about is which Epson files to download - there’s a confusing selection. Can someone help me select the correct files to download and then tell me how to install them - just use YAST?
Start here for the Epson packages… http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=LX
Enter ‘WF-7510’ for mode. There will be a number of packages offered. For printing, you can select the generic or fill-fetured driver package. The scanner driver will also be needed for scanning. Once they are downloaded, use the package manager to install them, and any dependencies should be handled at that time. For a 64-bit machine, the printing package is called ‘epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.7-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm’, and the scanner package is ‘iscan-bundle-2.30.4.x64.rpm.tar.gz’. This file is in the form of a compressed archive so the payload will need to be extracted first. You should be able to do this from the graphical file manager, by right-clicking on the fie and selecting ‘Extract’.
Thanks, Deano. Should I download the pc fax driver as well?
I haven’t installed anything yet, but I’ve ended up with file:///home/rsmits/Downloads/iscan-bundle-2.30.4.x64.rpm, file:///home/rsmits/Downloads/epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm and file:///home/rsmits/Downloads/epson-pc-fax-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm files. Does that look right to you?
I’ve never installed PC fax driver, and haven’t needed to fax for nearly 20 years, but that is up to you. The printer driver is the full-feature ESC/P Driver, and the you have downloaded the scanner driver as well. Navigate to the Downloads folder, right-click on a file and install with the package manager.
I downloaded the other printer driver and get the same message about integrity Check

Thanks. I have one lingering problem. In the past I’d open a picture in Gwenview and then print it - and get a colour picture. When I do this now, the picture shows up in Gwenview in clour , but when i print it - it comes out in black and white. Is there a way to configure Gwenview or should I use another program?
