EPSON SX130 problems

This printer (all in one) need avasys driver for working.
Drivers are available here: http://linux.avasys.jp/drivers/lsb/epso … .2.src.rpm

The drivers are even available in aur: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=49751

I installed the aur version, but the printer is NOT recognized by cups. I tried even to downgrade the kernel (2.6.32lts), but it's not working

lsusb show this:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 04b8:0883 Seiko Epson Corp.

The scanner is properly working, the only problem is the printer.

Any suggestions?

Re: EPSON SX130 problems

wanted to say that i made it.
Used HAL and blacklistet usblp (it takes no difference so i blacklisted it because it is not needed, but it should run without blacklisting too)
look up in the arch wiki "Drucker"

Re: EPSON SX130 problems

now ive got real troubles!!!
I need my printer right now and it stopped working.

Components:
Avahi-daemon
cups
hal

hal-cups-utils
Created also right symlink for hal-cups-utils

With hal running, cups recognizes a "hal printing backend"
Without hal, cups recognizes nothing.
I need help as fast as possible

Re: EPSON SX130 problems

same problem here,

I have another pc with ubuntu 12.04 and the printer works fine there using the epson driver and without hal, so I'm sure there is some trick ...

Re: EPSON SX130 problems

works for me now, probably some of the latest update solved the issue, no need to blacklist usblp or to use hal

Re: EPSON SX130 problems

Try this:
create /etc/udev/rules.d/10-cups-usb.rules:

ATTR{idVendor}=="04b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="0883", MODE:="0664", GROUP:="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes"

Use idProduct of your printer
Maybe it works.
For my sx100 it does

Re: EPSON SX130 problems

I use a similar udev rule for sx130 too

cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-cups-usb.rules
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="0883", GROUP:="lp", MODE:="0666"

this is required for my printer, without it the device is created with mode 0664 and scanner group and so it is not accessible by cups, maybe should be added to the wiki
