Simple-Scan for Epson Perfection V500 PHOTO

Postby Albert » 27 Oct 2017 01:21

Getting Epson scanner files that really work was a nightmare for me. In Synaptic, the core pkg and the data pkg were wrong (did not work for me), the plugin pkg was missing. The three pkgs below made Simple-Scan work with my Epson Perfection V500 PHOTO scanner. I thought that following these bread crumbs might be useful to anyone else having trouble getting an Epson scanner to work on Linux. Your mileage may vary.
------------------------------------------
# As I followed the path below I ended up with the following directory path:
...Downloads/DebianDevices/epsonScanner-11.04
# and in that directory:
iscan-gt-x770-bundle-1.0.1.x64.deb.tar.gz #yielded the bundle deb below:
iscan-gt-x770-bundle-1.0.1.x64.deb # this yielded the three dirs below:
core #contained:
iscan_2.30.2-2_amd64.deb
data #contained:
iscan-data_1.36.0-1_all.deb
plugins #contained:
iscan-plugin-gt-x770_2.1.2-1_amd64.deb

# These three pkgs, installed, work on Solydx9
# I would recommend that the data pkg be installed 1st.

# This is the path I took to the bundle deb.tar.gz file.
