Hi again everybody,
I’m having trouble installing my Epson, WF-3620 wireless printer on Linux Mint Mate 17.2. I am very new to Linux so please excuse my extreme lack of knowledge. Here are the steps I have taken:
I open Control Center – Hardware - Printers - Add - Network Printers. My Epson is immediately recognized and listed.
I click on Forward, and the message Searching for drivers appears. Then I see the choice of epson-escpr, and Local Driver. I chose epson-escpr and click Forward.
After a few seconds the message Installing driver epson-inkjet-printer-escpr appears. A few seconds later I am asked for my password, I enter it, and the install continues. However, after that, nothing happens. The little circle spins (just as in Windows), but it never stops. I have waited as long as thirty minutes and nothing happens. There are no error messages, and the install bar doesn't move.
What is really strange is that prior to this install (yesterday), I had Linux Mint Mate 17.1 on a USB thumb drive, and the printer installed and worked perfectly. Also, please note that the computer I am using does not have Wi-Fi. It connects via Ethernet cable.
I don't have the skill required to troubleshoot this problem, so any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
