For the benefit of other readers, let me clarify some things.

1. Setting a static IP address for the printer is a ONE-TIME procedure done from a single Windows machine. The printer remembers its permanent address. You don't need to change the printer setups on the individual Windows machines - they appear to use the device's MAC address instead of the IP address.

With Epson, this involves downloading and running their separate network config utility.
Can I also suggest another alternative - If your printer is not currently set to "static IP" and is set instead to "Auto DHCP" it will get its IP address from your router and this address will be whatever the router decides to hand out on the day, depending on what other devices such as laptops and phones happen to come on line periodically. This can be a source of confusion for computers looking for a printer on a specific address.

In such cases you can tell the router to assign the same IP address to the printer each time.

This could alleviate the need to use an external utility such as the Epson one mentioned.

The way to do this is to get access to the address allocation tables in the router and highlight the printer as requiring a constant address. (your isp or google will help you get this done). Some people may find this easier than trying to change the setting in the printer.

Hi, I need to report a very minor issue with the latest peasyscan bundle in Fatdog64-702: the preview window unit label should be "mm" instead of "cm". Equivalently, the slider units should be divided by 10, i.e. decimal numbers instead of integers.
Version
Code:

peasyscan-2.5-noarch-1 [inst=yes]: peasyscan 2.5 (Simple Scanner GUI) 
xscanimage-peasy-2015.05-x86_64-1 [inst=yes]: xscanimage-peasy 2015.05 (xscanimage for peasyscan) 

Cheers!

Hi Bill,

I really find this Peasyscan awesome ! Again lot of thanks for it !
especially the "Auto" + combine pdf features.

Just that the scanimage's Gray mode option produces
- poor contrasted black and white images
- rather huge images (ca 540K for 75 dpi resolution gray A4 sized images);
This latest point could be a "nice to have" option of peasyscan when scanning to pdf files: add the command line under 2. below, inside the peasyscan script Confused

I got a try digging into peasyscans codes, and also the possibility to apply a config.cfg file, ans found the following:

1. config.cfg file to get a better black and white contrast (scanner = Canon Pixma MP160), to be placed in /usr/local/peasyscan/config/
Code:
<uri>pixma:04A91714_F30F67</uri>
<source>Flatbed</source>
<mode>Gray</mode>
<resolution>75</resolutions
<paper>A4</paper>
<other>--custom-gamma=yes --gamma-table `gamma4scanimage 0.1 0 3000 4095 4095`</other>


NB:
- the 3000 value is a first trial value; it still might need to be somewhat optimized;
- the 4095 value is the gamma4scanimage (*) gamma table size range;
--------------------
(*)http://www.pkill.info/linux/man/1-gamma4scanimage/

running the following reports an error message giving the max range or size "maxin" of the gamma table:

Code:
sh-3.00scanimage --mode Gray --custom-gamma=yes --gamma-table [0]0-[99999]255  >image.pnm
scanimage: option --gamma-table: index 99999 out of range [0..4095]


[0..4095] means: 4095 = max gamma table size = "maxin"

--------------------

2. To reduce the size of pdf files without noticeable degradation, I use to run the following command line (up to 1/10th reduction, which allows to spare memory and/or bandwidth):

Code:
sh-3.00# gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dPDFSETTINGS=/screen -dNOPAUSE -dQUIET -dBATCH -sOutputFile=/mydir/output.pdf input.pdf


Best regards
HTH
Charlie

Get rid of the ":9100". That port is only used for setting up the printer.
