I have a epson stylus office bx305fw plus, But i don't now where the scan option is in the default printer application in Ubuntu
How can i scan with my printer?
I just got my Epson Stylus Office bx305fw plus to scan using simple scan. I plugged in to the printer/all in one via usb and the scan worked I then tried it wirelessly and it worked. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and a thinkpad t61.I had downloaded the epson driver from here http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/download/lsb/epson-inkjet/escpr/ I hope this helps. Tiernan
Whilst this may not answer your question it will certainly get you started.
"simple-scan" is what I use for a similar HP scanner/printer. You may need to install it, I can't remember if it's installed by default.
This will tell you if the scanner is detected by your computer.
