Epson scanner issue



Hello, I think this is my first post here.
I am trying to operate an Epson L4150 on-board Rock pi4 b multifunction printer. I was successful in running the printer. But the scanner is another story. Xsane does not recognize it. I have been trying to install the driver which is downloaded from the Epson page, but it is for armhf.
I tried a dpkg --add-architecture armhf, then update, but when I try to run install.sh from the Epson driver, it throws error:
E: Failed to locate package libboost-filesystem1.58.0

Somebody could help me? Thank you

I am also having trouble booting the board. I have to turn on and off several times until I get a desktop, and my system freezes occasionally.


This is normal for development boards that are still in the development phases.

We are all in the same boat. Except we are the one fixing the board troubles in our spare time, while you just want to have "stable operations". That small "million dollar" thing ;)


Well, like I said over there its not directly an Armbian problem which means its outside support in any case, but you are free to ask on forums - someone might know something. But Epson corporation is the one to bother. If they don't help you, buy something else next time. I use HP printer and Cannon scanner. They both works fine under any Linux OOB.

I was finally able to fixed this issue by adding the raspbian repository.


Epson L360 scanner works perfectly including Sane in Windows (SaneTwain)


I use an RK322X box ( arm7l / armhf ) with Armbian Buster with Kernel 4.4.194


1.) Create a raspi.list file on /etc/apt/sources.list.d 


You can do this using the nano command:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list


2.) Copy this to its content:

deb http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ buster main ui

deb [trusted=yes] http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster main contrib non-free
deb-src [trusted=yes] http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster main contrib non-free


3.) Execute these commands one by one:

wget https://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian.public.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -

wget https://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/raspberrypi.gpg.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade


4.) Finally run the install.sh from the imagescan folder you've downloaded from the Epson driver website (for me, I use the deb file for 32-bit ARM, armhf )

sudo ./install.sh


5.) If you have running with timeout issues on sanetwain (windows), you change the ini config located in %USERPROFILE%\sanetwain.ini and increase the timeout value

I have some kind of experience with Epson L-380. Do you need any kind of help with this? If yes, then you can shoot. I hope I can share my experience with you here. Though, next month I am going to launch a new website with the help of site creator. The website I am going to build up based on tech basically printer problems. Let see what I can do. I will update you later.
