Hello, I had to install Linux Lite on a new hard drive, but having trouble installing the software and drivers for my printer a Epson XP-245. If i go to the website below and fill in my printer details, and click the Printer Driver and Scanner Driver, i don`t know which version to download. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Derekg,

With LL 5.0, there is a new version of CUPS.
Have you try to install  your printer/Scanner WITHOUT drivers from Epson site ?
I use a XP-335 and I don't need to load drivers from Epson site and it works correctly under LL 5.0 ; on the test page it is specified "driver : drvless.ppd"



For scanner, don(t forget to stop firewall prior to start SANE.

Derekg,

In this case you will have some parameters to specify in ndifferent fils to get the scanner working !

In the directory /etc/sane.d :

1/ Modify the file  dll.conf and activate following lines :   
                                                            net
                                                            epson
                                                            epkowa
                                                            epson2

2/ Add or modify the file named  epkowa.conf to add scanner ip adress and port 1865 : (in the exemple below, it's my epkowa.conf file)
                                                            net 192.168.1.152 1865
                                                                  ----------------
                                                                  Replace by your printer ip adress

3/ Reboot the system and start Sane.

1/ You vill have to edit the file "/etc/sane.d/dll.conf" and suppress the "#" for the lines containing :
    #net
    #epson
    #epson2
  and add a line to specify :
     epkowa

2/ Create the file  "/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf" and specify :
     net aaa.bbb.c.d 1865

    Note : replace aaa.bbb.c.d by the ip adress of your printer, it's generally the form "192.168.1.nnn"

    To get printer adress :
     1/ Start your printer and wait to get it in ready mode
     2/ Use terminal and give the command      lpinfo -v | grep -P '://'

3/ Reboot your system

You need to use :
sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
and to specify your password when asked, be carefull, it's normal than the password doesn't appears !

And to create epkowa.conf :
sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf

Self explanatory. Gedit is not installed. Use sudo nano.

I did exactly what you said to do, and created the epkowa.conf file and added my settings to net aaa.bbb.c.d 1865 and saved it. Rebooted my computer and did a test print, but it was firing blanks.

So i deleted that printer and added a new one, under select device and went through the setup. I did a test print and that worked.

I downloaded the scanner driver and followed the README guide, and when i type ./install.sh. It gives this error message.

This is getting over-complicated.

Undo ALL that you have done to date, I don't know why people are suggesting what they have so far. I'm sure the intent is good, but the research needs to be 100% accurate.
Don't do ANY of the below until you have undone previous work. Remove any Epson printers listed in Printers, then reboot before proceeding.

Download - https://download2.ebz.epson.net/imagescanv3/ubuntu/lts1/deb/x64/imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-20.04-3.63.0.x64.deb.tar.gz

Extract package.

Open extracted folder. Right click Open Terminal here.

Code: [Select]
sudo su
enter password.

Code: [Select]
./install.sh
follow instructions.

If you get errors, it will be because you have missed a step or not followed the instructions provided to the letter.
