The following error displayed by epson-printer-utility can be safely ignored. I don't know what is the cause, but is doesn't affect usability: Unable to load library icui18n "Cannot load library icui18n: (icui18n: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)"

If you get the error Communication daemon down, Error code = -1, you have to start the ecbd service. You can either do that with sudo systemctl enable --now ecbd.service if you want the serice to run at system startup or with sudo systemctl start ecbd.service if you only want to start the service manually each time you use epson-printer-utility

@Un1Gfn thanks, will work on it. Will probably go with option b, on this one.

Mind is blown that this still requires qt4. Qt 4 was retired 12 years ago.

Packages that use prebuilt deliverables, when the sources are available, must use the -bin suffix.

Epson provides an epson-printer-utility-1.1.1-1lsb3.2.src.rpm.

This package should probably either
a) be renamed to epson-printer-utility-bin; or
b) have the source switched from epson-printer-utility_1.1.1-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb to epson-printer-utility-1.1.1-1lsb3.2.src.rpm

@cfr42 there was a 404 error yesterday but now everything seems back to normal :

Could anyone update the package ? I would love to do it but don't know how to and I'm afraid of messing things up.

Does anybody know the location of the source now? I can't find it even by navigating the Linux support site for Epson and trying to download from there. I just get a 404 error. New to Epson printers and not sure where else to look ...

@RoestVrijStaal, feel free to adopt this package and apply these changes. I don't own an epson printer anymore and will thus not continue maintaining this package.

Edit: typo

New URL:

For myself I modified the PKGBUILD to make modifying easier for myself by defining a separate variable for the part between /12/ and /${pkgname}-blahblahblah

# Addition after the definition of pkgdesc

# My modification of the definition of source

In this way, I only need to change 18/20/47a925b197d626fa66f80bb0eabbb56811a5eed8 to something new instead of fiddling within the definition of source itself.
