[SOLVED] EPSON WF-7515 printer drivers

Hello,

I have an EPSON WF-7515 (network printer/scanner/fax). EPSON provides Linux drivers as deb and rpm packages (a couple of them also as tarballs and/or src.rpm):

http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 … c4e81d2667
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 … 895e8cc31b
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 … ae21da522f
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 … 0364fe0d61
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 … d55a95d39d

Most packages depend on LSB. Installing all this in Debian is straightforward.

What would be the easiest way of setting up this printer/scanner/fax in Funtoo?

Best regards,

Miro

Re: [SOLVED] EPSON WF-7515 printer drivers

OK, after a long struggle, I have got it working:

COPIER: Does not need the computer.
FAX: I have not tested faxing directly from an application, but, strictly speaking, does not need the computer as far as you can print.
SCANNER: XSane recognises the network scanner out of the box.
(merging Epson's iscan fails, but it does not matter)
PRINTER:
Merging of the generic drivers from the sunrise overlay fails.
Installation of the specific drivers from RPM and SRC.RPM files has succeeded:

HOWTO

(adapted from here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-948946.html)

1.- Download rpms from EPSON website

http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/searc … archModule


epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.src.rpm 
epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.i486.rpm

2.- Convert the RPMs to tar archives

$ sudo emerge app-arch/rpm2targz
$ rpm2tar epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.src.rpm
$ rpm2tar epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.i486.rpm


3.- Install the static content

$ sudo tar xvf epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.i486.tar -C /


4.- Compile and install the filter

$ tar xvf epson-inkjet-printer-201110w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.src.tar
$ tar xvzf epson-inkjet-printer-filter-1.0.0.tar.gz
$ cd epson-inkjet-printer-filter-1.0.0
$ libtoolize --force --copy
$ aclocal
$ autoconf
$ automake
$ chmod +x configure
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201110w
$ make
$ sudo make install

5.- Copy the filter and change permisions

$ sudo cp /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201110w/lib/cups/filter/epson_inkjet_printer_filter /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201110w/cups/lib/filter/epson_inkjet_printer_filter
$ sudo chown root:root -R /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201110w


6.- Configure the printer from the CUPS web interface

$ sudo /etc/init.d/cupsd restart

Open http://localhost:631 within a web browser
Administration -> Add Printer -> etc 
Choose the correct PPD from /opt/epson-inkjet-printer-201110w/ppds/Epson

Epson-WF-7510_Series-epson-driver.ppd.gz
Epson-WF-7511_Series-epson-driver.ppd.gz
Epson-WF-7515_Series-epson-driver.ppd.gz

(in this case, it is the 3rd one)
