View Full Version : [ubuntu] Struggling with using terminal to install drivers

August 14th, 2018, 06:17 AM
Greetings everyone,

Completely new to all this due to yet another Windows update screwing my OS on my laptop. So I'm finally persisting with trying something new.

I was able, through some minor miracle, to install the driver for my Epson XP-520. However I am really struggling to install a driver for the scanner that is included in the printer. I have followed all instructions on forums and Epsons website and I just can't execute the install.sh command in terminal. It is literally doing my head in!!

I am pretty much illiterate when it comes to any type of Terminal or Command entry on a PC. If anyone has a really simple solution for me it would be greatly appreciated.

if you are using sudo you need to be in the same directory as the scripot and to put ./ before the script to specify the current directory e.g.
sudo ./install.sh

Yep, been doing that and it's giving me nothing. Tells me nothing in directory or some such tripe. I do hate computers me. [-(
