Linux Driver for Epson Printers and Scanners

Have you got a Epson branded Printers or Scanners / Multifunction Epson products which can Print + Scan + Copy and looking for drivers for the devices to work in GNU/Linux ?

An Organization from Japan named Avasys is providing Drivers for Epson Printers + Scanners + Copiers of any model under GNU/Linux. These drivers comes as binaries (i.e ready to be executed) so that you don’t need to compile the source manually to get the binary. Available for Debian family (Ubuntu / LinuxMint,etc. ) and Redhat family (Fedora / CentOS, etc. ).

Follow the Step-by-Step instructions below to install those drivers on you GNU/Linux.

Step 1:- Hit their Site

Click here to go to their GNU/Linux Drivers Page. Now click on the device type whether it’s a “Printer or Scanner or whatever you need “.

Epson Printers works out of box in all modern GNU/Linux with default drivers that come along with the Operating System. Epson scanner needs drivers to be installed in GNU/Linux to use. So we will show you how to install the drivers for Scanners.

Step 2:- Select Your Model

Now as soon as landing the Scanner page, You will have multiple sections here like “Product Information, Licence Agreement, Os of operation, Form for Download”.

Form for Download section lists available scanner modules. Select your model.

Note:- If your Model is not mentioned here, choose any model, since the function of scanner is same for all the Scanners, any driver should work. This is what worked in our case with Epson Stylus Tx121 model.

Now below that choose the Operating system, version and other options given and then Click on Next.

Step 3:- Installation

Now based on the Operating System you have selected, you will taken to the page of the respective download page.
For Eg:- If you have selected Ubuntu / Debian / Mint you will be in page with  .deb files. ( For Fedora / CentOS its .rpm files).

You have to download and install 2 types of packages.
1. Data Package &
2. Core Package.

Depending on your OS is 32 / 64 bit first Download and install the Data package and followed by that install the Core package.

Step 4:- Image Scan

As soon as the installation of both Data and Core packages are completed. A new tool named Image Scan will be installed in your system.
Connect your Scanner with your GNU/Linux powered system and start the Image Scan tool and scan the files.

Note:- A Default tool named “Simple Scan”  that comes with GNU/Linux Operating system can also be used to scan documents here after. We prefer Simple Scan over Image Scan.

We hope this posts enlightened you to Install and Scan Documents successfully on the GNU/Linux systems. If you encounter any problem with this, Do comment below.
