@electricprism yes it does. you can figure that out by going to http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=LX and entering your printer model. Unfortunately, the keywords have a limit so not all models can be included there.

electricprism commented on 2022-04-06 23:50 (UTC)

Does this include the ET-8500 driver?

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2021-12-24 19:03 (UTC)

unfortunately, the keywords field has a length limit which we have hit already

osimarr commented on 2021-12-24 18:29 (UTC)

Can you add ET-M2170 to the keyword list?

Zetabite: autoconf is part of base-devel, which you apparently did not install. See here for details. If you have probelems using some AUR helper like yay, please contact them for support. See also AUR helpers.

sergefan, violaian, BackpckBartender: Please click on “Flag package out-of-date“ in the top right corner instead of adding a comment when a new version is available.

sergefan commented on 2020-10-10 14:00 (UTC)

New version 1.1.22 is out, better to follow the upstream url if build failed.

violaian commented on 2020-09-18 07:21 (UTC)

New version 1.1.19 is available

BackpckBartender commented on 2020-09-08 00:58 (UTC)

It looks like Epson released a new version (1.1.17) and removed the old one. Attempting to make the package fails, stating there was a 404 error while downloading.

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2020-07-25 18:49 (UTC)

@bboozzoo awesome thanks for that fix! uploaded now.

bboozzoo commented on 2020-07-25 18:26 (UTC)

@AngryUbuntuNerd I've updated the patch locally, feel free to grab it from here https://github.com/bboozzoo/pkgbuilds/commit/8519333a1b3514054a35ab7990b1f5394e69248b I've only tested with WF-7710, so far did not notice any issues. The driver is a bit messy, but from quickly scanning through it, the chunk calling XFIFOWrite() does not appear to be called at all.

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2020-07-25 17:26 (UTC)

I updated this driver to 1.1.15, but the patch for 64 bit support stopped working. Currently I dont have time to fix this, and no machine to test it on, so if its still an issue could someone else help out?

Does it work for my Epson WF-3725 printer? Any raccomandations to follow prior to install this package? Thanks.

enanone commented on 2020-04-03 09:18 (UTC)

@AngryUbuntuNerd I figured out what the problem was. My system (uname -r --> 5.5.13-1-MANJARO) has the following default LDFLAGS configured in /etc/makepkg.conf:

LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now,-fuse-linker-plugin

Removing those flags gets the package to compile flawlessly. Kind of sad that the default flags fail just like that :(

enanone commented on 2020-03-06 13:11 (UTC)

@AngryUbuntuNerd thank you very much for the answer, I'll look into it

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2020-03-06 12:35 (UTC)

I just tried again with a freshly updated Arch Linux (x86_64) and it works:

checking whether the C compiler works... yes

Either a problem with your PC, or there is a dependency missing. Let me know.

This hits a 404 when trying to download the package, i updated the url and sha256 to what's below

<https://download3.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/03/00/10/49/70/d7d30d9326b55356aaeb68ffd02d014623bfb8e4/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.1.3-1lsb3.2.src.rpm>

32e31d45ab77040230e6334a2cb612680f1b7ede4a404229ab035f33443d957a

I also updated the version to 1.1.3, and ran makepkg

this worked for me... I think that either the src.rpm should be commited to git, or the link gets updated regularly, it seems like it's on a CDN which isn't stable.

Wychmire commented on 2019-12-15 21:37 (UTC)

Would you be willing to add ET-3760 as a keyword since it also requires this package?

@catlover2: Without knowing the exact (printer-specific) amendments to make, I cant easily integrate this into the PKGBUILD. And even if I did, it could easily change from version to version and make maintenance painful.

I think you should report this upstream to the guys at Epson to add for your specific printer.

catlover2 commented on 2019-06-17 08:23 (UTC) (edited on 2019-06-17 08:24 (UTC) by catlover2)

Dear maintainer,

I recently disovered that the PPD for the Workforce 7710 is missing definitions for some paper sizes that the printer is capable of printing. I'm not sure how many of the PPDs in the package might have similar problems.

I was able to add missing definitions to the PPD for my printer, and I documented my process on the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS/Printer-specific_problems#Adding_missing_paper_sizes

If you or somebody else knows more about this, maybe some of these extra definitions could be incorporated into this package?

benv666 commented on 2019-05-29 09:23 (UTC)

rantanplanx's comment worked for me as well, please update the PKGBUILD :)

Epson printer driver download page seems to be broken quite a while now :'(

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2018-12-06 16:02 (UTC)

Thanks @uwe, that fix worked on my machine, updated the PKGBUILD @lukas.fink1 your fix seemed to not work for me, same error like before

uwe commented on 2018-12-06 10:31 (UTC)

It does not work for me. I had to add one line in "build" section after "cd":

autoreconf -f -i

Got it from here: https://github.com/apereo/mod_auth_cas/issues/97

lukas.fink1 commented on 2018-11-27 18:47 (UTC) (edited on 2019-01-14 22:02 (UTC) by eschwartz)

What worked for me was changing the build function to this:

build() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
  aclocal
  autoconf

  ./configure --prefix=/usr \
              --with-cupsfilterdir=/usr/lib/cups/filter \
              --with-cupsppddir=/usr/share/ppd
  make
}

(I don’t know how to do newlines here so: https://pastebin.com/3ARnHjqy) This seems to rebuild aclocal.m4 and configure with the installed version of the GNU Build System.

I am getting an exception when building the new version (1.0.27) of this package, saying "'automake-1.15' is missing on your system". The automake in the Arch repos is 1.16.1 - I assume thats the problem? If someone else has the problem and knows how to fix it, I can update the PKGBUILD

pontiaj2066 commented on 2018-10-21 18:21 (UTC)

Looks like it's broken again. Along with the first one

another random update that 404s the old link - updated again

numbleroot commented on 2018-09-14 13:10 (UTC)

It appears there is a new driver version available as the current download link returns "File not found".

Is it possible to update to the new driver URL? Thanks!

There's a new version of the rpm. If you could update the package will be awesome.

Unfortunately the PKGBUILD fails for me. Seems the link has changed again according to a new version: https://download3.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/03/00/07/40/95/bdb3928f99c2dcc486a29a5c91f470682166e998/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.0.17-1lsb3.2.src.rpm edit: sha256sum is f0ddfd93540d035d5a6f51ce021572ec0f066449dd00cbec56ec9f048045ba3a but I guess you would verify anyway :-)

Mamporrero commented on 2018-05-15 17:26 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. Have downloaded everything in sight while the going is good.

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2018-05-15 10:25 (UTC)

Epson just likes to 404 their download links immediately when they are updating anything. Annoying.

Updated to 1.0.16 and working again.

Mamporrero commented on 2018-05-14 10:00 (UTC)

All of the Epson download links here seem to have stopped working (as have many of the links to download Epson scanner software for Linux). Does anyone know what is going on? And would any kind soul be able to let me have a copy of the current version (ideally .deb for 64-bit Ubuntu, but I can probably cope with other formats)? At present after an upgrade I'm unable to print.

updated to 1.0.13

grunch commented on 2018-03-16 13:36 (UTC)

I must have missed the "window of opportunity" to install 1.0.12-1. I now get a "404 not found" when installing this version. And I see that 1.0.13-1 is the current version on Epson's support site. Thanks!

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2018-03-07 15:28 (UTC)

thanks for the hint, updated to 1.0.12-1

nebosa commented on 2017-12-29 20:33 (UTC)

Thanks @hcartiaux ! Driver works now with my ET-4750 :)

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2017-12-29 16:25 (UTC)

Thanks @hcartiaux, much appreciated.

For some reason the patch did not work for me, so I re-created it changing the same lines to what you suggested. Now all is good.

Unfortunately, I can't test myself either before end of next week. If anyone would want to give it a new try..

hcartiaux commented on 2017-12-29 15:08 (UTC)

I've adapted the patch given by @stronnag for epson-inkjet-printer-escpr. It compiles but I've not tested.

nebosa commented on 2017-12-29 14:30 (UTC)

Hello, I can confirm! Epson inkjet printer escpr2 with ET-4750 driver just pushes a blank page out of the printer :( I can print with the ET 4550 driver

koalaeagle commented on 2017-12-28 19:26 (UTC)

I am using the PPD for the ET-4550 (for my ET-4750) which appears to work fine for the moment. I may try gnucli's suggestion of removing the ESCPRCompression line. Unfortunately, I do not know any C either to be able to assist with the issue :/

gnucli commented on 2017-12-27 05:18 (UTC)

I had a similar issue with my ET-2750 on Linux Mint where the paper just passed straight through without trying to print anything. Running dmesg didn't show any errors, though. I resolved it by unzipping the PPD file (in my case: Epson-ET-2750_Series-epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2.ppd.gz) and deleting line 32 which says "*ESCPRCompression: 3, 16". I don't know what this line was supposed to do, but the printer seems to work fine now without it.

AngryUbuntuNerd commented on 2017-12-18 12:03 (UTC)

This is an issue with the package. Printing with this driver creates a segfault on 64 bit systems (check dmesg to see) because of some sloppy C code in the Epson driver. It needs a patch as the other driver epson-inkjet-printer-escpr got, but I lack the skills in C to do it myself.

I don't understand though how you made it work with the epson-inkjet-printer-escpr driver because it does not actually include a PPD for the ET-4750.

koalaeagle commented on 2017-12-17 00:25 (UTC)

I just wanted to report that I had issues with the ppd for the ET 4750. The printer instantly said "cancelling" and printed nothing/a blank page. I tried over IPP/IPPS and RAW(Port 9100). I installed the epson-inkjet-printer-escpr package and am using the ET 4550 driver without any issues for now - until this is fixed. I understand that this may not be an issue with this package but with the upstream sources, however, I thought it was worth reporting here in case anyone else needs a workaround or runs into a similar issues.
