How to install Epson Stylus CX5600 on Ubuntu 10.04

I’ve found many tutorials about this topic, but only one, found in Luis Gallardo’s blog, worked for me.

Luis’s tutorial explain how to install on Ubuntu 9.10, so some steps are not necessary. I’ll show necessary steps to install on Ubuntu 10.04.

You need to download drivers from Avasys site. Go to this link, scroll down the page, choose “Epson Stylus CX4300/CX4400/CX4450/CX5500/CX5600/DX4400/DX4450“, “Ubuntu” and version “10.04“, click “Next”.

Now, download “iscan-data_1.9.0-1_all.deb“, “iscan_2.26.4-2.ltdl7_i386.deb” and “iscan-plugin-cx4400_2.1.3-1_i386.deb“. After, run commands:

sudo dpkg -i iscan-data_1.9.0-1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i iscan_2.26.4-2.ltdl7_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i iscan-plugin-cx4400_2.1.3-1_i386.deb

Make sure the scanner is connected and turned on and run command

lsusb

Should appear a list of devices connected to the USB ports, like this:

Bus 003 Device 004: ID 04b8:083f Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus DX4450
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 04fc:05d8 Sunplus Technology Co., Ltd 
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 04f3:0216 Elan Microelectronics Corp. 
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 18e3:9101 Fitipower Integrated Technology Inc 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

The first line (“Bus 003 Device 004: ID 04b8:083f Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus DX4450“) means the scanner was detected on address 003:004.

These steps are enough for the scanner be detected for XSane, but only root can to use.

To fix this “little” problem, edit file /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules and add the following lines:

# Epson CX5600
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04b8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="083f", MODE="0664", GROUP="saned", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

Turn off and turn on your scanner. To see if the problem was fixed, run command lsusb again. The output should be like this:

Bus 003 Device 004: ID 04b8:083f Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus DX4450

Note the number of “Bus” and “Device”, with them run command

ls -l /dev/bus/usb/<BUS>/<DEVICE>

Replace <BUS> and <DEVICE> by respective numbers:

ls -l /dev/bus/usb/003/004

You will see something like

crw-rw-r--+ 1 root saned 189, 129 2011-07-01 14:01 /dev/bus/usb/003/004

Now you can to use your scanner with any user owned to group saned.


Amarok’s playlist stop after play one music

Recently I had a problem like others Amarok’s 2.1.1 users: It play only one music and stop.

To resolve this: Close Amarok, delete the file ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/current.xspf and then restart Amarok.

Least worked to me and I hope that works for you too! 😉

Until next!!


The most used Unix commands for Windows

Have you thought about run commands like grep, chown, tail e su in Windows SO and can change command dir by ls?

Looking in internet for an alternative Win32 to command tail, I found UnixUtils. A compilation for Windows of most used commands in Linux/Unix.
