Installing printer driver Epson Expression XP-352

(Giorgio) #1

In OMLx4 there is no driver for my Epson Expression XP-352 printer.
I downloaded Linux driver from Epson site but when I try to install it using dnfdragora I get a long list of missing dependencies:

['\n Problema: package epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.37-1lsb3.2.x86_64 requires lsb >= 3.2, but none of the providers can be installed\n - conflicting requests\n - nothing provides lib64qtnetwork4 >= 4.2.3 needed by lsb-lib64-5.0-0.alpha.4.x86_64\n - nothing provides lib64qtopengl4 >= 4.2.3 needed by lsb-lib64-5.0-0.alpha.4.x86_64\n - nothing provides lib64qtsql4 >= 4.2.3 needed by lsb-lib64-5.0-0.alpha.4.x86_64\n - nothing provides lib64qtsvg4 >= 4.2.3 needed by lsb-lib64-5.0-0.alpha.4.x86_64\n - nothing provides lib64qtxml4 >= 4.2.3 needed by lsb-lib64-5.0-0.alpha.4.x86_64\n - nothing provides qt4-common >= 4.2.3 needed by lsb-lib64-5.0-0.alpha.4.x86_64']

sudo dnf install epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.37-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm

PS>
Forget dnfdragora :stuck_out_tongue:

No, è una roba inutile secondo me.
Intanto, evitandolo oggi hai imparato ad installare un pacchetto che hai scaricato.
Inoltre la cosole fornisce un output intelleggibile.

Looks like a required package is missing: lsb ( >= 3.2)

We have some lsb-* packages but not “lsb” only.

One of them is lsb-release in version 2.0

Name         : lsb-release
Version      : 2.0

To be honest I have no knowledge on the matter, sorry cannot help.

From what I see this crap needed lsb-lib64. While last version for cooker was build with qt4 libs and later qt4 libraries were dropped (removed from the repository).
Therefore, installation is impossible.

As a temporary solution, install it as:

rpm -i --nodeps /home/x/Desktop/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.37-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm

This should force instalation without checking dependencies. I can’t verify if it will work because I do not have such a printer.

If this not help. Open System Settings --> printers. Then try add your printer manually here.

You can also try install:

dnf install task-printing-scanning

or

dnf install task-printing-epson

EDIT: Task for future.
When ABF back to life. We should rebuild lsb or anything else with it,so that it does not bother us :smiley:
Also I think this epson driver is open source? Is available on Fedora… so I think it is possible to import it to repository. Of cource if needed.

I installed this printer in other distribution (openSuse and Mint 19) then the right Linux driver exists.
In OMLx 4 printers list I don’t find it then I tried to download driver from Epson site.
I will wait to see if an update of CUPS or similar include the driver.
