    EPSON WF-3520 Scanner

    I bought myself and EPSON WF-3520 for Christmas. Supposedly it works well with Linux using the epkowa backend.
    Ubuntu 13.10

    I connect it using a normal USB printer cable.

    $ lsusb # shows
    Bus 003 Device 006: ID 04b8:0899 Seiko Epson Corp.

    After going to the Epson site and downloading and installing
    epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.3.1-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb
    and using the printer configuration tool, printing works.

    I then download and install
    iscan-data_1.26.0-1_all.deb
    iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb

    For good measure I add myself to the lp, lpadmin, and scanner groups

    $ scanimage -L # alternates in behavior. On odd numbered invocations I get
    device `epkowa:usb:003:006' is a Epson WF-3520/3530/3540 Series flatbed scanner
    On even numbered invocations it hangs until I Ctrl-C.

    sane-find-scanner output is even less helpful

    $ sane-find-scanner
    # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
    # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
    # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

    # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

    OKI have just had this issues you have. Very good that you have addedyour self to the the printer group. Openthe system stetting then select the printer icon and then remove theprinter. Then remove the driversbelow.

    Epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.3.1-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb



    iscan-data_1.26.0-1_all.deband finally


    iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb.


    Oncethe above has been completed.


    Thenyou start over fromthe Epson website please see the link below grab your version if 64bit then grab 64 bit version. Use the link below


    http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule

    thendownload the down the corepackage&data packagefor scanner fromthe same page and not the one you have downloaded.


    iscan-data_1.26.0-1_all.deb then iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb


    Hereare the install steps.


    1install the GDebiPackage Installer youcan fin it in the software center. Note that you will use Gdebi toinstall all the package in this order

    2Then go back to system setting and add the printer.
    3.iscan-data_1.26.0-1_all.deb
    4.iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb

    Re: EPSON WF-3520 Scanner

    Ah. Basically you are saying I should have used the
    ESC/P Driver (full feature) driver with 2012 release date
    rather than the newer ESC/P-R Driver (generic driver) that I did use.

    Will try it.

    Thanks.

    Re: EPSON WF-3520 Scanner

    I still have problems. I was able to scan one page from the flatbed, but I got an I/O error when I tried to use the ADF and
    I can't even seem to get it to use the flatbed now.

    Mostly I just use Scan 2 Cloud and have the printer send the scan directly to my email. That works fine for most of what I do,
    but I still wish everything worked right.

    Re: EPSON WF-3520 Scanner

    Unfortunately, sammiev is right.

    Since 13.10 has reached end-of-life, and is no longer supported, you will, I am afraid, get repeated reminders from mods and admins IF you want to receive support and advice on the forums. EOL releases are not supported on the forums, therefore we shouldn't really encourage you to keep using it; besides which, it's just bad practice..!

    Initially, your first step should really be to upgrade to 14.04.1 LTS; a clean install would be best. Equally, 12.04 LTS would work, as it is supported till 2017.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As to your scanner issues, go to the following page:-

    http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du...a73a3ecc33dc12

    Scroll to the bottom, and click on 'Accept'.

    The two packages you will want are as follows:-

    iscan-data_1.33.0-1_all.deb. This MUST be installed first, as the scanner package requires data in THIS one in order to be able to install correctly.

    Then, depending on whether you want 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit (amd64), install the appropriate version of iscan-2.30.0-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_(i386 OR amd64).deb

    Both of these will install through the Software Centre. If you wish, you can install them with either Synaptic package manager, or the gDebi installer (this one works better for 'standalone' installs.)

    Once these are installed, look in the Dash for 'Image Scan for Linux!' This is your Epson Scanner utility. You will find, when you first try to use it, that you will receive a message something along the lines of 'Scanner not detected', or something similar. Don't panic! Exit the scanner program; switch the printer/scanner off, THEN turn it back on, and open the scanner program again. All things being equal, it SHOULD now work.

    Hope this all helps.



    Regards,


    Mike.
