    Question How to install Epson ET-3700

    I am running Ubuntu 18.04.1 on a PC with Intel Core2 Duo.

    Trying to install an Epson ET-3700.

    System searches for but is unable to find correct driver.

    Epson lists drivers to download for Ubuntu here:

    http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du...2575418d70ea49

    ... with the following options:

    epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2_1.1.2-1lsb3.2_i386.deb 1.86 MB
    epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.1.2-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm 1.66 MB
    epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2_1.1.2-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb 1.86 MB
    epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.1.2-1lsb3.2.src.rpm

    epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.1.2-1lsb3.2.i486.rpm 1.66 MB
    2.45 MB
    Information
    [Notice]
    In order to install these drivers, you need to install LSB package (version 3.2 or later) beforehand.

    Ubuntu:
    # apt-get install lsb

    Fedora:
    # yum install lsb

    OpenSUSE:
    # yast --install lsb





    ... but I have no idea how to proceed.

    Many thanks,

    ~Mark

    Hi, welcome to the fora.

    Please run the three commands
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt dist-upgrade
    sudo apt install lsb
    one at a time and post the output in CODE tags.

    You do not need any vendor drivers to print with the ET-3700. Put the printer on the network and execute
    Code:
    driverless
    to get a URI and substitute in
    Code:
    lpadmin -p et3700 -v URI -E - m everywhere
    Test printing with
    Code:
    lp -d et3700 /etc/nsswitch.conf
    All-in-all, a five minute task.

    The OP receives two quality responses and then doesn't respond. What a waste of everyone's time and effort!
