Printer Scanner EPSON L210 in Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy

Printer Scanner EPSON L210 in Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy

Still in the same story of Ubuntu 13.10. The vendor also provided EPSON L210. This printer is economic and it has big toners. So, yeah, then again I think they made a good deal with this vendor.

Just google it up, because the EPSON Indonesia’s Terms of Use  prohibited me from taking any of their pictures.

According to OpenPrinting, EPSON L210 have epson-201207w official driver. Hmm… I wonder why they haven’t included it into the Installation CD in Indonesia. To download it, follow the link to the download page. They might be have updates from time to time. Or, just use the later.

I used the first method: (ethically, you must agreed with their terms first before you go download these)

$ wget http://a1227.g.akamai.net/f/1227/40484/7d/download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/01/00/01/87/87/126d18060d9881eaed0ff545ad711bd4e642b62a/epson-inkjet-printer-201207w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb

Download also the Scanner driver: (ethically, you must agreed with their terms first before you go download these)

$ wget http://a1227.g.akamai.net/f/1227/40484/7d/download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/01/00/02/50/83/cdca0d1272f76cb915b90784e27afc03a055ac19/iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb
$ wget http://a1227.g.akamai.net/f/1227/40484/7d/download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/f/01/00/02/50/83/cdca0d1272f76cb915b90784e27afc03a055ac19/iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb

Install all:

$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

And it would be normally error because of the absent of dependencies. Install the dependencies and the packages:

$ sudo apt-get -f install

Install XSane for scanner application:

$ sudo apt-get install xsane

GIMP could detect XSane when installed and took it as GIMP’s plugin. Enjoy!

I was helping some folks setting up their PC. They used Edubuntu 13.10 and using a broadband provider. They got a modem connected into a Wireless LAN Access Point (WLAN AP).

They brought TP Link TL-WN725N to connect into the AP. It was suggested by their vendor. Well, it was a cheap one, so I think the vendor was right.

Unfortunately, installing it on Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy) variant wasn’t that easy. Ubuntu 13.10 came with 3.11 kernel. After a long search, I have came up with solution. So, I wrote this tutorial for others to find.

Cut The Chase and Go On

To install this, make sure the PC got the right packages for building kernel modules.

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms

Optionally, if you haven’t got GIT, install it:

sudo apt-get install git

Then, grab the driver’s source code:

git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu

Get into the directory.

cd rtl8188eu

Compile.

make

And install.

sudo make install

Don’t forget to reload the kernel modules dependency.

sudo depmod -aq

Reboot, and enjoy.
