I am new to linux, and I have problem to install Epson L4150 printer.

I found 3 files through http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule

I. L4150 Series Printer Driver Linux 1.0.9 ESC/P-R Driver 2 (generic driver) 10-23-2017

II. L4150 Series Printer Driver Linux 1.0.2 Epson Printer Utility 10-23-2017

III. L4150 Series Scanner Driver Linux 1.3.22 All-in-one package 10-05-2017

I download first a file called epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2_1.0.9-1lsb3.2_i386.deb, and extract it. Then I went to Settings - printers - add one, I managed the installation of the printer driver. After that, I have tried several times to print a page from Writer, but it failed (The Document Print Status says the status is "stopped", I tried reprint but no luck).

The second file I download is epson-printer-utility_1.0.2-1lsb3.2_i386.deb, but unfortunately, because I am new to linux I don't know how to install this printer utility.

The third file I downloaded is iscan-bundle-1.0.0.x86.deb.tar.gz, after extracting it, i found there a "install.sh" file. I managed to run sudo .../install.sh, but after installation, I didn't find any scanner inside the setting - hardwares area. I don't know if the scanner installation is ok or not.

Could anyone be so kind to give me a hint? That will be very much appreciated.

  • I went to Ubuntu Software Center and found Printer driver for Epson Inkjet that use ESC/P-R, installed this driver, but had to manually add through Setting - Hardware - Printer - Add one... Took about 1 hour and finally the printer starts to work. :D Not found any Utility program yet. Still don't know how to install the scanner driver so that I can use the scanner. Hope somebody can help! – Neverhurry Nov 11 '17 at 19:35
  • You should not extract .deb packages. To install, for example, epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2_1.0.9-1lsb3.2_i386.deb, open a terminal window and type: sudo dpkg -i epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2_1.0.9-1lsb3.2_i386.deb. – mikewhatever Nov 11 '17 at 19:49
  • Thanks. @mikewhatever, I follow your method and get this: paul@paul-G31T-M2:~$ sudo dpkg -i imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-16.04-1.3.22.x86.deb [sudo] password for paul: dpkg: error processing archive imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-16.04-1.3.22.x86.deb (--install): cannot access archive: No such file or directory Errors were encountered while processing: imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-16.04-1.3.22.x86.deb what did I do wrong? – Neverhurry Nov 11 '17 at 20:50
