Title: Problems installing Epson XP-445 Network Scanner
Post by: Nanayaw on April 11, 2020, 04:53:40 AM
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 (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

Nanayaw

"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 (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:
[email protected]:~# ufw status
Status: active
[email protected]:~# ufw disable
Firewall stopped and disabled on system startup

[email protected]:~$ scanimage -L
device `epson2:net:AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD' is a Epson PID 0885 flatbed scanner

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 (https://www.epsonprintersupport247.com/easy-to-apply-methods-for-fixing-epson-error-code-0x97/) problem.

Hello All

now after a long time without a network scan problem, I got the problem again
there was nothing changed at the system only normal updates.

I tried following:

1. Disable Firewall >> No effect
2. Install the driver again >> No effect
3. I also added the device ID to the network IP adress >> No effect
