Scanner Epson V37 under Linux

Postby Arathor » 2013-03-27 00:30

Hi all,

I’m considering buying a scanner. It’s new for me, so I’m looking for some advices.

After some research, I chose an Epson Perfection V37.

It doesn’t appear in the list of sane support:
http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-EPSON

However, according to this list, the V37 is supported:
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 ... d8b481d435

Does someone has a V37 and uses it under Linux?

For the time being, a friend lend me a Epson SX130. I use it with iscan. Is the V37 works fine with iscan, is there a specific problem with this model?

Overall, what do you think of the V37?

Thank you in advance,
Arathor.

Hi Arathor,

I just installed the Epson V37 scanner successful under Debian Squeeze (i386).
Please search on site "http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=L" after your scanner product (V37).
It should be appear core package&data package and iscan plugin package

install this packages under Squeeze
iscan-data_1.22.0-1_all.deb
iscan_2.29.1-5~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb
iscan-plugin-perfection-v370_1.0.0-2_i386.deb

you can check it with following
sane-find-scanner --> found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x014a [EPSON Perfection V37/V370]) at libusb:003:005
scanimage -L --> device `epkowa:interpreter:003:005' is a Epson Perfection V37 flatbed scanner

after installation it working successful with GIMP and Image Scan

Indeed, it works. I’m under wheezy.

Thank you very much for your answer, timeghost. I had a moment of fear, since it didn’t work with just iscan and iscan-data (“Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner's status.”). The Epson site doesn’t indicate that it needed a plugin. I have to come back to see your post, since you said it works.

The plugin for the V37 is here:
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02 ... e65a538440

Result : it works with iscan, perfect! And sane find the scanner (just in case, I added epkowa in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf).

Just wanted to mention that this worked for my Epson Stylus Photo RX595 (PM-A840S) printer/scanner.
Code: Select all
$ uname -vro
4.2.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.2.1-2 (2015-09-27) GNU/Linux

Hi,

I'm new to installing things with commandpromt line.

It seems Epson has packaged the files mentioned earlier to one package .deb . I have dowloaded the package to my /Download directory but don't know how to install it.

If somebody has the time to help me out I'd be very thankfull.

'apt install ./package.deb' (new) or 'dpkg -i ./package.deb' (old). If you want a GUI for this, install gdebi.

+1 for above.
Just to add that if you get any error messages, you may have to add one or two libraries.
apt-get install <name of file missing file>, then run the apt-install or dpkg -i again until it installs with no errors.

I have a Canon 9000F MkII which works perfectly with Xsane under Stretch, Testing and Sid.
