First, I trust I am subscribed to the correct forum: the forum that offers
scanner support tied to Linux flavors. If not, please direct me to the
I have a laptop that runs both Window$ and Linux Mint 18.2, 64 bit. Mint
is my primary OS: I use Window$ only when I absolutely have to. I
purchased an Epson WorkForce ES-200 duplex color scanner to be used on
Linux Mint 18.2. I spent hours downloading/configuring scanner related
software with poor results: I can scan, but the quality of scans is poor,
at best. I use "Image Scan" software; other applications (gscan2pdf, XSane
Image Scanning Program) do an even worse job - very likely related to
availability/configuration of appropriate software. Then I ran into
something on Epson's site that told me to click on "Image Scan! for Linux"
to configure the scanner. When I do that, with the scanner hooked up and
turned on, I get the following message:
Could not send command to scanner.
Check the scanner's status.
It appears the software I downloaded from Epson is not configured
properly. I have limited knowledge in this area and am unable to write
I am requesting help to get the right software downloaded and configured so
I can use my scanner for quality scans without having to resort to Window$
to get a decent scan (configuring it on Window$ was a breeze and the
quality of scans is very good).
Thank you for the support!
Use the free, legal, and versatile office software suite: LibreOffice
