When I use my Epson V19 Flatbed Scanner, with my Linux OS (Ubuntu Mate 16.04) I can only use it once. I'm using XSane Image Scanning.



The blue light stays on for hours. To use the Epson a second time I must unplug it, plug it back in to make the light go out. I then can scan again.



Is there a way to use Epson Drivers with my OS, or shut down the Scanner so that it can be used again and again?


I hope this will be understood. Be nice I'm old and not very techy...


Thanks S.O.

Hi,

So a couple of things right off the bat. Your still using 16.04. According the the Ubuntu end of life (EOL) documentation. There hasn't been support for that version of the OS since April 2019. I would recommend backing up your data, then updateing to either 18.04.4 LTS or the most recent release which is 20.04 LTS.

The other issue is that Epson doesn't support Linux with drivers natively. There might be some second or third hand drivers out there.

Hope this helps.

Hello wmorri, My 16.04 LTS is good till 2021, and I am still getting updates.


I'll be getting 18.04 LTS (Ubuntu -Mate) real soon.



After scouting around some I found Simple Scan, and it just works. Nothing fancy like Xsane...It just works.


Thanks for the input, and looking out for me.
Have a great Day!


so
