Scanner drivers
« on: February 18, 2024, 09:17:42 AM »
Hello,

I have an old laptop, I've been using it as a network printer.
I would like to know if it is possible to install the drivers for the printer and the scanner on such old laptop.

The printer scanner is a EPSON L3110 Series and it works with the Epson Scan 2 software (there is a package for debian)

https://files.support.epson.com/docid/cpd6/cpd60855/source/scanners/source/scanning_software/tasks/epson_scan_2/scanning_escan_2_spc.html

Is there a way to install this on TinyCore or CorePlus?

It’s possible that it might work with the simple-scan extension.

You are running this old laptop under Windows, I assume?

I cannot make promises nor do I have a clue as to how old this software is, but there IS a DEB and RPM port.

Thanks for answering, I'm using linuxlite on that laptop, it works ok but it struggles when trying to do some other works.

I was wondering if it is possible to make the Epson Scane 2 work on CorePlus or TinyCore, and how complicated could it be to switch to TinyCore/Coreplus and make the printer work.

Kindly

You're the only one who can determine that - I doubt any of us have the Epson unit you have to test with.
  • Create a TinyCore USB stick and boot the laptop from it
  • Using the first stick, use tc-install to install TinyCore onto a 2nd USB stick
  • Boot the laptop with the 2nd stick and test functionality
  • Search the forum for deb2tcz and follow instruction using the Epson DEB package
If the above works with your printer/scanner you have answered your question.
