Unhappy Why can't Ubuntu 9.10 find my Epson TX110 printer/scanner?


I can't use my printer/scanner - it is an Epson TX110. When I try to use Image scan - I get the message; "Could not send the command to scanner. Check the scanner's status."

There is nothing wrong with the MFC apart from not working on Ubuntu 9.10. I have had it connected to another computer that ran Ubuntu 9.01 (I think that was the release used) and it ran fine but now I'm stuck - I have googled and tried stuff to no avail.

Please help - I am a newbie and would need step by step instruction. Many thanks in advance and please help.

I have drivers installed but cant get them to co-operate with me.

I know that this is a bit late, but in case someone else stumbles across this question
one of the easiest ways to set up most printers is to follow the instructions at
http://www.linuxfoundation.org/colla...driverpackages

In particular for debian based systems (eg Ubuntu) add the following line
Code:
deb http://www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/debian/lsb3.2 main contrib main-nonfree
to /etc/apt/sources.list or the Settings/Repositories list in synaptic, then
Code:
sudo apt-get update
and try installing the printer again.
