wikk,
Welcome to LQ.

Put V30 in the product name box, but leave the OS blank on this link:
http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/se...h/searchModule

Scanner driver 1.0.1 all-in-one package was released on 07-04-2016.

Both 32 bit and 64 bit deb.tar.gz downloads are available.

None of the V30 drivers downloaded from Epson website are functional on Mint 18.

wikk,

I don't have a Canon V30 to play with but I downloaded the 64 bit tar.gz file to my Desktop and extracted it there using this command in Terminal:

Code:
tar zxf iscan-gt-f720-bundle-1.0.1.x64.deb.tar.gz
This produced a folder called iscan-gt-f720-bundle-1.0.1.x64.deb which contains:

data folder
core folder
plugins folder
install.sh
README.rst

Linux Mint is supported (see screenshot) and nothing appears to be wrong with the download or the following instructions:

http://download.ebz.epson.net/man/li..._e.html#sec6-1

The packages must be installed in the following order (data, core, plugin):

[DEB] 64 bit:

1. Installing data package
Code:
sudo dpkg --install iscan-data_1.36.0-1_all.deb
2. Installing core package
Code:
sudo dpkg --install iscan_2.30.2-2_amd64.deb
3. Installing plug-in package
Code:
sudo dpkg --install iscan-network-nt_1.1.1-1_amd64.deb
NB You need to indicate the correct path to the appropriate directory before you operate the above commands.

Example for iscan-data_1.36.0-1_all.deb:

Code:
cd Desktop

cd /home/wikk/Desktop/iscan-gt-f720-bundle-1.0.1.x64.deb/data/iscan-data_1.36.0-1_all.deb
Similarly for the core and plugin.

Other screenshots are attached.

What exactly did you do after downloading the tar.gz file?

Did you receive any error messages during the attempted installation?
