  • VIDEO CARD: AMD ARUBA
Hello All,

I migrated from Win 8 to LL 4.8 what was quite easy, but now I'm struggeling with the setup of my Epson XP-445 Networkscanner.
The print function is working by network

Here the steps I tried
> Downloaded the scanner driver from Epson http://support.epson.net/linux/en/imagescanv3.php
   Driver >> Ubuntu-16.04-3.62.0.x64deb
> Copied to home / user
> Depacked >> See attached pic
> Run terminal at that folder location
> Start install process with ./install.sh

At the end there is something written that libboost-filesystem1.67.0 not found

I checked the Epson install tutorial but I didn't got a solution.

Did somebody have an idea how to solve this issue?

Thanks and Greetings

"Driver >> Ubuntu-16.04-3.62.0.x64deb" is the wrong driver for starters. If you are on 4.8, you need to start with "Ubuntu 18.04(LTS)" assuming you are on 64bit, this is the correct link - https://download2.ebz.epson.net/imagescanv3/ubuntu/lts1/deb/x64/imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-18.04-3.62.0.x64.deb.tar.gz

Hello Jerry,

thamk you very much, with the driver you provided the installation worked.

First the scanner was not detected then I changed the settings at
 /etc/sane.d/epson2.conf

# network
#
net 192.168. .....      (I removed # at the beginning to set the code active // and add my printer IP adress)
# net autodiscovery  (I set # that this code is inactive)

Thanks a lot

Greetings

Hello,

Everything looking good !

A problem may happens with the firewal :

Are you sure that firewall is not blocking the connection? I had similar issue which solved by changing ufw settings. It can be tested by:
root@joker:~# ufw status
Status: active
root@joker:~# ufw disable
Firewall stopped and disabled on system startup

joker@joker:~$ scanimage -L
device `epson2:net:AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD' is a Epson PID 0885 flatbed scanner
LL 4.8 running on Dell Optiflex 760
LL 4.8 running on Asus X52J
LL 4.8 running on Toshiba Satellite C670-14W
LL 3.8 (32 bits) running on HP Pavilion
LL 5.0 running on Samsung RV515

Hello Paul

Thanks for the additional informations's,
I personally didn't got a problem with the connection caused by the firewall,
but I'm shure it will help somebody else.

You can replace you motherboard with new one, This issues solved your problem permanently and you will fell better. But If you are not able to replace motherboard with new one then you can solve your problem with the help of another option Like you can repair your printer and solve your problem.

You can use this solution also OFF your printer suddenly remove all cables and USB drives after two minutes, plug all cables and On your printer and check that its work or not. you should clean your printer with wipe napkin and warm water but after remove all plug and you will be do this work carefully. I also read this somewhere because i also have a printer and I had solved my Epson printer error code 0x97 problem.
Epson printer error code 0x97 is a kind of warning that occurs when you face any kind of internal hardware issue in your Epson printer. This error is caused due to multiple reasons such as motherboard failure or any other internal component failure.
