It wouldn't be possible to predict without trying it. The packages won't install on Solus as they don't use the same format. Whether they can be extracted and simply work, wouldn't be able to tell without having the hardware and tryingcrom5 wrote: ↑Mon May 15, 2017 2:07 pmHello all,
I'm preparing to switch to Solus from Ubuntu in the next days or weeks.
Currently I'm using Epson L365 (Wi-Fi All-in-One Ink Tank Printer) for printing and scanning work (connected via USB cable).
Epson L365 doesn't work out of the box in Ubuntu, it needs some special drivers easy installable through Ubuntu Software Center:
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/searc ... ch/?OSC=LX
"L365 Series ‖ Printer Driver ‖ 1.0.2 / Epson Printer Utility ‖ 05-01-2017"
"L365 Series ‖ Printer Driver ‖ 1.0.0 / ESC/P Driver (full feature) ‖ 01-30-2015"
"L365 Series ‖ Scanner Driver ‖ 1.3.20 / All-in-one package ‖ 05-01-2017"
Printer drivers (LSB package version 3.2 or later is required) are available in both deb and rpm formats, while scanner drivers depends of Linux distribution in use:

Would it be possible to get Epson L365 work in Solus?
I can't tell you if it's possible/supported/will work without actually doing it myself (or someone else doing it) which requires that the hardware is available as I didn't see the source to build it for Soluscrom5 wrote: ↑Wed May 17, 2017 8:18 amSorry but I didn't understand what you mean: it is impossible to perform experiments without you having a hardware and consequently instead of installing Solus only I will have to dual boot it with Windows 10, or it is enough that I install Solus and later somehow apply your tricks?
I understand that you can export a PDF file from the toolbar, but I was curious as to what is available via OpenOffice concerning scanning capabilities. I have used Acrobat in the past for scanning into PDF but I would have to upgrade to at least Acrobat 9 for that functionality. I don't wish to do that if OpenOffice has that functionality available somehow.crom5 wrote: ↑Wed May 17, 2017 8:18 amSorry but I didn't understand what you mean: it is impossible to performBulk scanning service without you having a hardware and consequently instead of installing Solus only I will have to dual boot it with Windows 10, or it is enough that I install Solus and later somehow apply your tricks?
