Looks nice. GMB get forked, or did the development team just give it some love?

The copyright files should have been part of the Debian package for the printer. If the symlinks were created incorrectly, you would have to create them manually.

adequate - this package?

The man page doesn't have anything about creating a log file.

You can try piping the command through more:

Code: [Select]
adequate --all | more
to see if it gives you information one page at a time. Then use the Enter key (one line at a time) or space bar (one page at a time) to view results.

Other option would be to redirect the output to a text file.

Code: [Select]
adequate --all | col -b >> ~/Documents/filename.txt
That might give you a human readable text file with all the errors. The col command filters the line feed and "-b" removes backspaces so you should get an ordered list of the errors.

deb-multimedia is deprecated so comment out those entries

The deb-multimedia packages were meged into Debian proper repositories quite a while ago. Comment those ligns out and do a system upgrade. If get a message to upgrade the key file, go ahead and accept it.

I am trying to install an Epson package to run the scanner and I keep getting

When is the last time you upgraded the system? It's a new model of printer so you may need to get everything upgraded before any drivers install.

Found this: fix broken packages in debain with synaptic. Looks to be current, but I haven't actually used Debian in quite a while.

Search the Debian forum for "fix broken packages in synaptic".

I thought Debian was phasing out synaptic, but I don't think it's actually depricated.

The first one is just a theme warning, don't worry about it.

Did you try a system upgrade from the terminal.

Code: [Select]
apt-get dist-upgrade
usually get some more information from the command line output on what to do and what needs to be fixed.

Good deal.

What driver shows in synaptic that you couldn't find with apt so others will know what package(s) are required?

I have been looking on Debian Forum page and it seems that I need to install some sort of irc client, no idea what that is

irc = Internet Relay Chat. You only need that if you want to join a channel and chat in real time. VSIDO has an irc channel, but it's not used too much. Hexchat should be installed by default if you need an irc client.

Try to install lsb-base.

If that doesn't work, your best bet may be to use the Debian forum.

The instructions on the printer driver site are for Ubuntu, and I assume they still have the package available. There may be a Debian package available or maybe it's in backports.

Ask on the Debian forum how to get that package for Debian Sid.

Does:

Code: [Select]
# apt-get install lsb
not work to install that package?

this may be what you actually need.

Find the Ecotank model you're interested in,

then enter the model number in the product name box; selecting the operating system is optional.

Looks like the Ecotank series of printers have driver support as of May 2020 -





So there may be support in the Debian Sid packages after you do an upgrade, or you can download the driver files from EPSON after following the links. They have provided 32 and 64-bit deb files in the past.

Edit - confirmed, 32-bit and 64-bit deb files available. You will also need to install the lsb package (I think it's installed by default) prior to installing the drivers.

You can check for EPSON drivers on their site to see what models are currently supported.

VSIDO is based on Sid so any Debian package for printer drivers may already support the printer you're after.

EPSON and HP usually keep their drivers fairly current. Brother and Cannon not so much.

No problem.

Is skanlite in the repos?

Do you have another computer to test the scanner?

scanimage should be part of the sane package. If the command isn't there, then sane isn't installed or it's not on your $PATH.

No you will need the proper drivers (64 or 32 bit) for your scanner. If you want 32-bit drivers on a 64-bit system, you'll need to install the 32-bit compatibility packages. The Brother site where you can get drivers for Linux walks you through the various install processes.

This your scanner? - you will want all the deb packages and that install tool.
