[SOLVED] Epson printer not detected

Sat Feb 03, 2018 12:45 pm

Hello,
I have an Epson Stylus Office BX305F printer that I want to configure on Solus Gnome. My problem is when I try to add my printer into Gnome Settings my printer is not detected.

The only thing that the Add Printer window show me is the CUPS-BRF-Printer:

I used the lsusb command to see if my printer is detected and it seems true:

Code: Select all

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:8001 Intel Corp. 
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8009 Intel Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 04b8:0863 Seiko Epson Corp. ME OFFICE 620F Series/Stylus Office BX305F/BX305FW/TX320F
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 04d9:a067 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc. 
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
In fact, SimpleScan detect and use correctly the integrated scanner.
Any suggestions?

Suchen Sie im Software Center nach "epson-inkjet-printer-escpr" und installieren das Programm falls es noch nicht installiert ist.

Sorry Google Translator:
In the Software Center, search for "epson-inkjet-printer-escpr" and install the program if it is not already installed.

Sorry, I forgot to say that I had already installed the package epson-inkjet-printer-escp and it didn't fix the problem.

Problem, der Epson Stylus Office BX305F ist nicht bei den Treibern ! Es gibt nur den Epson Stylus Office BX305 !
Ob man den von Hand mit dem letzten Treiber einrichten kann weiß ich nicht ! :?

Yes, it is.

The weird thing is that recently I used a Solus Budgie live ISO in order to fix another problem and from the live the printer is correctly detected.

Same problem with the Epson Stylus CX3200 printer.

Comment that the printer worked without problems with previous versions of Solus

Hallo, versuchen Sie mit Chrome die Adresse "http://localhost:631" auf zu rufen. Benutzername und Passwort von Ihnen !
Dann "Drucker hinzufügen" , vielleicht kappt es so.
Ansonsten weiß ich auch nicht weiter. :?

Hello, I solved the problem with the printer.
1st check with

dmesg
