Subject description: 3 Easy Steps
 

Install Epson V300 Scanner in Puppy & Fatdog in 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Download and install deb pkgs from Epson Download center.
Link: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/

For FatDog you need 3 64-bit packages:
esci-interpreter-gt-f720_0.1.1-2_amd64.deb
iscan_2.29.2-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb
iscan-data_1.24.0-2_all.deb

For Puppy you need 3 32-bit packages:
esci-interpreter-gt-f720_0.1.1-2_i386.deb
iscan_2.29.2-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb
iscan-data_1.24.0-2_all.deb

Step 2: In a terminal, execute the following command:

iscan-registry -a interpreter usb 0x04b8 0x0131 /usr/lib/esci/libesci-interpreter-gt-f720

Step 3: Edit the /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file.
You want to comment out all the scanners that you are not using and add the word "epkowa" at the end of the file.
(Note that I also commented out the Epson & Epson2 scanners ... epkowa was the only scanner I listed in the dll.conf file)

That's all there is to it.

I tried this out on 64-bit Fatdog (500 & 600).
I also tried it out on Puppy-511, Slacko-5.4, & Precise-5.4

Note that step #2 is usually what gets missed. This command puts a file called "interpreter" in /var/lib/iscan ... This file should have a single line in it for your scanner. In this particular case, the vendor and model IDs are for the Epson V300 scanner ... if you have a different model scannner, you would need to run "lsusb" in a terminal to determine the IDs to use in step 2.

@All:-

Just for information, for anyone who is using an SX218 (or NX220 or TX220) 'all-in-one' under Tahrpup, the data & scanner package .debs from the Epson downloads page install smoothly, and work, hassle-free, OOTB.

http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02/DriverDownloadInfo.do?LG2=EN&CN2=&DSCMI=36159&DSCCHK=1285c6147fa7d2741a19e3a4df6d9949c57b39d8

Scroll down to bottom, and click 'Accept'. You can then scroll down further to find the necessary packages. You'll want the 'iscan-data_1.36.0-1_all.deb' data package, and either the 'iscan_2.30.1-1~usb0.1.ltdl3_i386.deb' or 'iscan_2.30.1-1~usb0.i.ltdl7_i386.deb' scanner packages.

Very important:-

You must install the data package before the scanner package, as the scanner package needs to be able to read the contents of the data package, in order to configure itself properly. You should then find the Epson 'Image Scan for Linux!' scanner application under 'Graphics' in the main Menu. Make sure your printer/scanner is turned on before opening the app.....it complains if you don't!

As noted by rcrsn51, XSane & PeasyScan will also work with these Epson scanners....whether 'standalone' units, or as part of an 'all-in-one'. You may need to un-comment the 'epson' and/or 'epson2' entries in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf if using XSane, as it otherwise won't detect the unit. XSane will explain this when you open the application. You also may find you need the 'epokwa' .pet; I didn't find it to be necessary. This may or may not depend on your hardware.

As also noted by russoodle, these are indeed 'versatile' drivers. In fact, Epson provide about a dozen Linux driver & data packages in total for the literally hundreds of printers & scanners that they've produced over the years.....which goes to show that the firmware hasn't changed very much at all during that time period (some 25 years by my reckoning!)

Hope that helps.


Regards,

Mike. Wink
