Quick Tip: Installing Epson Stylus Scanner Drivers on Linux Mint
If you happen to have an Epson Stylus TX100 Multi-Function Printer, getting it the printer function to work is EASY since Linux Mint 8 auto-installs the required printer drivers. However, to get the scanner function to work you’d need to seek out for the driver.
Fortunately, it’s an easy find on Google. Apparently a company called AVASYS has provided a whole bunch of Epson printer and scanner drivers on their website here. Just navigate and look for your specific scanner model and you’d get to the required file in no time. If you’re wondering if these are supported drivers by Epson, well, it seems that it is as it’s listed here in the Epson website on platform compatibility.
But if you’re looking specifically for the TX100 drivers as I did, here the direct link to the download page and look under the “Download for Epson Stylus NX100/SX100/TX100/TX101/TX105/TX106,Epson ME 300 Latest Version” section. If you’re on Linux Mint 64-bit like me, then get the DEB 64bit package [libltdl7] (for Ubuntu 8.10 or later) – iscan_2.24.0-4.ltdl7_amd64.deb file. Otherwise, just choose the appropriate driver for your Linux distribution.
Once installed, you’ll find Image Scan! for Linux now available for all your scanning needs!
