My problem is the following Who knows how? I'm not talking about the Elemementary App Store downloads. I mean programs from other official sites like for Epson printer drivers and scanners, where there is NO link/address to use "apt-get install <…>" etc. in terminal code. When I use the download button and unzip the download it opens bit I cant see the '.exe' button, only the folders * files - so it's not visible' in the "Apps" window - thus useless. When I try to open in in terminal editor I get: " unable to locate file" etc. So could you tell me how to, preferably, get the get the terminal address from the button on the download site or How to install the downloaded zip/.tar using the terminal code, with the correct folder indicators - thus a few lines of code plz.
UPD: If the manufacturer's installation instructions have failed, here's what you could try:
- Go to your
AppCenter. In the search field, type Eddy (this is a handy .deb packages installation helper), select and install Eddy application.
- Download the scanner driver archive from the Epson link. Make sure to choose .deb 64bit(amd64) version, if your processor is 64bit. In this case, the name of the archive will be
Filesbrowser, right-click the downloaded archive and select
Extract Here. This will extract the archive into the folder "iscan-gt-x770-bundle-1.0.1.x64.deb".
- Go to that folder. There you will find three more folders (core, data, plugins). Inside each of these folders you will find a file with a
.debextension. Double-click each of these .deb files and install them with Eddy. Reboot if necessary.
OK, now I found the problem with the screenshots. Also i tried the Terminal fix suggested in the instructions, bit to no avail :( Get the same fault report. Can you help please? see attachmentsfault message
OK here is what I get, it seems to be installed but does not seem to get into the Vuescan or iScan app. But non of my usb printers connect either, one says it's printing but I get no result on paper(WF-2010) . My Stylus pro 3800 just does nothing .. so maybe we should look at how to check if the usb periphials are visible. Btw I do see external usb HDD's when I connect them,
