[Solved] Installing Epson Iscan For Linux

In this blog the common error while installing Epson Iscan on Ubuntu.

Here is a question asked on the forum (ask Ubuntu).

I’ve recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 on a Lenovo Thinkpad. I have an Epson Perfection 1240u Photo scanner with a backlit film adaptor and I want to get it running. I’ve downloaded the software recommended by Epson (iscan-bundle-2.30.4.x64.deb) and extracted the files which are sitting in my downloads folder. I’ve tried running sudo ./, as per the instructions here:

and here:

but all I get is ‘command not found’. Could someone please explain to me – in the simplest terms possible please as I’m a complete novice and therefore don’t understand most of the terminology – what I need to do to install this software?


You’ve downloaded iscan-bundle-2.30.4.x64.deb.tar.gz file.

It is an archive that contains iscan-bundle-2.30.4.x64.deb directory.

Extract that directory to your Home folder.

Then run in a terminal

cd iscan-bundle-2.30.4.x64.deb
sudo ./

This is how you can solved the error of the Epson Iscan on ubuntu.
